Manchester City and their Premier League rivals are expected to do business this summer as they try to shape their squads for next season.
Pep Guardiola’s side are expected to end the current campaign as title champions as they currently have a 13-point lead at the top of the table with six games left to play.
The team have blasted away the opposition on the domestic front, but once again they have fallen short in Europe.
The elimination is still a little raw, but the media have moved on to focus on potential transfer activity.
According to The Mirror, West Bromwich Albion defender Jonny Evans is keen to sign for the champions elect.
The publication claims that City wanted the Irishman in January, but they were £2m short of the Baggies’ price tag.
Now that West Brom are destined for the Championship, Evans is likely to move on, but City fans are praying that the former Manchester United player does not turn up at the Etihad Stadium.

Did city actually put a bid in, I doubt it. It just won’t work, one mistake and he’s a gonna with the fans. Anyway after signing Laporte I can’t see City buying another cb. That transfer was going to be in the summer but it was brought forward, if I remember right so it’s a no go
