Arsenal fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to speculation linking the club with a move for West Bromwich Albion defender Jonny Evans.
It has been reported by the British newspaper that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning a £15 million move for Evans.
The North London outfit are claimed to be looking for a centre-back following the long-term injury suffered by Per Mertesacker in pre-season.
Evans, who is 28 years of age, joined West Brom from United in the summer of 2015.
The defender had a pass accuracy of 76% and a shot accuracy of 25%, and won 54 headers, 22 dribbles and 52 tackles.
Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to speculation linking the club with a move for Evans in the summer transfer window.

But Jonny Evans ain't bad to me #AFC any average consistent player will improve at arsenal nd why they can't over pay on players.— Dotun (@DrawgAcE) July 31, 2016
We don't want another silvester or squillachi; i repeat do not bring Johnny Evans to our club #afc— Olanrewaju (@iamlanreban) July 31, 2016
Have to say, I'd prefer we signed Williams then that plonker Evans, if I had to decide between them. #afc— Alan Cody (@goonercody) July 31, 2016
I would be pleased if we signed Evans. experienced CB,would not require a bedding in period & know the PL.Would be a good addition #AFC— Jąmé$ Pöllárd (@JTPollard10) July 31, 2016
Johnny Evans?..that better be a joke..I would rather we give Holding, Chambers or Bielik a chance or better still go 4 Ashley Williams..#afc— Olayinka (@ykgunnerz) July 31, 2016
Evans to Arsenal for 15m? Is this another test of my faith? So glad I'm not religious on top of supporting AFC. Would be too exhausting.— Mike L (@CuzImMikeLaryea) July 31, 2016
I know all us Arsenal fans are desperate for a signing but signing Johnny Evans would actually be worse than signing nobody. #afc— Damien Hanrahan (@HannaBergkamp) July 31, 2016
