Every player has a price
West Brom boss has admitted that “every player is for sale at the right price” amid interest from Manchester City in defender Jonny Evans.
The central defender is linked with a sensational move to Pep Guardiola’s City as the Etihad boss looks to have a very strong squad ready for a big season.
That would leave West Brom in an awful position with only a couple of weeks to go until the transfer window shuts for the summer.
Losing one of their biggest figures so soon to the end of the transfer window could really damage their season and Tony Pulis would certainly not like that.
That being said, Pulis has admitted that every player has a price and should a big money bid come in, they would be “crazy” not to accept it.
Pulis went on to explain that “We’re [West Brom] not desperate for money.”
That could see the side rebuff the majority of offers for the player but if Guardiola wants the player enough, he is likely to get him.
A bid of £18m has reportedly already been rejected which indicates just how big of a fee this deal could reach.

Replacement lined up
While it seems all doom and gloom for West Brom, they have certainly moved quickly to lineup a replacement for it Jonny Evans does leave.
The club will need to move swiftly for a player with such a short amount of time life and if Evans leaves, that man will reportedly be Mamadou Sakho.
The Liverpool defender spent the majority of last season on loan at Crystal Palace and impressed immensely during his time on the pitch.
West Brom could well move for the player should the receive enough money from the sale of Evans to Manchester City.
Liverpool are thought to want in the region of £30m for the player but that could represent even an upgrade on Evans.
