How Daniel Sturridge’s West Brom move affects Arsenal’s Jonny Evans deal

Daniel Sturridge: From Liverpool to West Brom

On Monday night the deal was confirmed.

Liverpool have sent striker Daniel Sturridge out on loan to West Brom for the rest of the season.

It’s a huge win for Alan Pardew, as West Brom beat the likes of Newcastle to sign the attacker.

With a World Cup just around the corner, and with Sturridge firmly on the outside at Anfield, his move this January appears to be a smart decision.

Arsenal & Jonny Evans

With just two days remaining in the January transfer window, will Jonny Evans leave West Brom?

Evans has been tipped with an exit from the Hawthorns for months.

The likes of Arsenal and Man City have both been linked to the Northern Ireland centre-half.

However Man City’s interested in Evans has ended as they’ve moved to sign Aymeric Laporte from Athletic Bilbao.

And, according to the Times on Tuesday, Arsenal now look set to miss out on Evans as well.

Why? Because the deal to bring Daniel Sturridge from Liverpool means West Brom can now hold onto their centre-half:

Arsenal’s chances of signing Jonny Evans have receded, with West Bromwich Albion determined to keep the central defender until the summer. They have been boosted by their signing of Daniel Sturridge on loan from Liverpool.

West Brom had needed to sell Evans to raise money if they wanted to buy a striker but Sturridge’s loan has meant that is no longer the case.
