Pep Guardiola reportedly interested in bringing Jonny Evans to Manchester City

Manchester City are interested in West Bromwich Albion's former Manchester United defender Jonny Evans, according to Sky Sports.

Pep Guardiola has identified Evans as a shock target as he bids to add another centre-half to his squad and make the 29-year-old his seventh signing of a dramatic summer overhaul.

Talks have been ongoing for the past couple of weeks about the Northern Ireland global, with City having had two offers turned down for a player that West Brom say is not for sale.

Evans is, of course, a former Manchester United player - making his debut for the Reds in 2007 before going on to make 131 appearances for the club.

The Northern Ireland worldwide only left Manchester United in 2015 but is now a potential target for Premier League rivals City.

Evans, 28, started his career at Manchester United and was playing there up until 2015 when he made the move to the Midlands based club.

West Brom have made clear their intention to keep hold of Evans and boss Tony Pulis appointed him captain following Darren Fletcher's move to Stoke earlier this summer. "There is no doubt about that".

However, if Evans was to join City he would follow Peter Schmeichel, Andy Cole, Andrei Kanchelskis, Owen Hargreaves and Carlos Tevez as players who have also been at both clubs since the Premier League's inception 25 years ago.

Everyone knows Manchester City have a weakness at centre-back. The captain, Vincent Kompany, has had an injury-troubled past two seasons, while John Stones and Nicolás Otamendi, the only two other front-line operators in the position, are yet to totally convince the head coach.
