Reported Arsenal target Jonny Evans scored as West Bromwich Albion picked up their first Premier League win since August by beating Brighton and Hove Albion 2-0 at the Hawthorns on Saturday, and Gunners fans have urged their club to sign the defender.
The Telegraph reported on January 8 that the north London outfit are keen to bring the Northern Ireland international to the Emirates this month, with the Baggies wanting around £25m for the player who has 18 months left on his contract.
The west Midlands outfit’s captain headed his side in front against the Seagulls on Saturday, before Craig Dawson secured a crucial three points for Alan Pardew’s side after the break.
Arsenal supporters were quick to have their say on the former Manchester United man’s latest display via social media, and while one said “sign Jonny Evans now”, another said “Evans is class”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
I’d definitely take him on a year and a half contract. Why not? Even on a 2 year loan

What’s happening with Jonny Evans then, not a marquee signing but someone who can stop gap until we can fully strengthen in the summer. I’ll take him.
