Arsenal have failed with a last-ditch attempt to sign Northern Ireland defender Jonny Evans from West Brom, according to reports.

The Gunners have shown interest in Evans, 30, for a number of weeks with Arsene Wenger open to bolstering his defensive options during the January transfer window.

Evans, who joined West Brom in 2015 from Manchester United, has impressed for the Baggies and also attracted attention from Manchester City last summer.
