Arsene Wenger admits Arsenal will be 'second best' if they enter Jonny Evans bidding war with Manchester City

Arsene Wenger has conceded Arsenal would have no chance of signing Jonny Evans if Manchester City made a move.

The Gunners and City are being linked with bids for the West Brom captain this month as they seek defensive reinforcements.

Wenger has refused to confirm or deny his interest in Evans but said that, if it came down to a straight fight with City for his signature, there would only be one winner.

“We don’t have an agreement with anybody. I think the best thing is not to talk,” Wenger said in a press conference on Tueaday, when asked about Evans.

“We will need to see off any interest of any other club, yes. I don’t know if Manchester City are in for anybody. I don’t know what their policy is.

“If the decision comes to finances against Manchester City, we know we will be second best.”
