Three reasons Everton should steer clear of signing Jonny Evans

According to reports in The Sun on Sunday, Everton have joined the race to sign West Bromwich Albion defender Jonny Evans during the January transfer window.

The Sun on Sunday says that the Baggies are willing to sell the Northern Ireland international with the Toffees and Premier League rivals Manchester City both keen on the 29-year-old, and it could be a big-money deal even though he only has just over 18 months left on his contract.

The centre-back has proven to be a big hit at the Hawthorns following his move from Manchester United in 2015, but he could be allowed to leave in the New Year despite the fact that Tony Pulis fought so hard to keep his captain at the club during the summer transfer window.

Meanwhile, the Toffees have endured a disappointing start to the campaign – which was slightly improved by the 3-2 comeback win against Watford at Goodison Park on Sunday – and although they haven’t yet appointed Ronald Koeman’s successor, it seems that won’t affect their future transfer plans.

While the Merseyside outfit may need reinforcements in defence, bringing the West Brom star to Goodison Park may not be the answer to their problems.
