Tottenham Hotspur are looking to activate the release clause in the contract of Jonny Evans which would stand at £3m if West Bromwich Albion are relegated, according to the Telegraph.
The Baggies look destined for relegation this season currently sat 10 points adrift of safety and should they suffer this seemingly inevitable fate, Evans would be available for a cut-price fee in the summer.
Spurs face competition from both Manchester City and Arsenal for the signature of the Northern Irish international, as they seek a potential replacement for Toby Alderweireld.
Intrest in Evans
Tottenham are keen on the idea of signing Evans in the summer, with the player available for a small fee and would bring experience to Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
Having played Champions League football for Manchester United and earned 67 caps for Northern Ireland, the defender has experience of playing at the top level.
Pochettino is set to sanction the sale of Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld in the summer, with the player refusing to sign a new contract.
With the central-defender set to leave and interest in Evans beginning to materialize, the current captain of West Brom could be the man to attempt to fill the void left behind by Alderweireld.
Tottenham are also monitoring Swansea City central-defender Alfie Mawson.
Alderweireld’s current deal is set to expire in the summer of 2019, and with Spurs’ latest offer deemed inadequate, the player is keen to depart the club this summer.
The Belgian looks set to depart Tottenham, with the player having made just two FA Cup appearances since returning from injury back in mid-February.
As expected when one of Europe’s best defender becomes available, there is huge interest from around the continent in signing the player.
Manchester United, Chelsea, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus and Manchester City are all queuing up to take him off the hands of the North Londoners.
