Arsenal are among a number of Premier League clubs considering whether to trigger Jonny Evans’ £3million release clause.

West Brom look doomed to the drop as they sit ten points adrift at the bottom of the table with Evans, 30, likely to be available for a cut price.

And the Telegraph report that Spurs have joined rivals Arsenal in the race for the Northern Irishman’s signature.

Arsenal failed in a bid to tempt Evans away from the Hawthorns in January.

The Gunners could try again in the summer as they attempt to sort out their problematic defence.

But the report goes on to claim Spurs may make a move for Evans if contract rebel Toby Alderweireld leaves.

Champions League-winner Evans has the experience at the highest level of club football that would make him an ideal signing for either club.
