Arsene Wenger concedes Arsenal cannot compete financially with Manchester City, with both clubs having been strongly linked with a January move for West Brom defender Jonny Evans.

“It would only be philosophical to talk about [Evans] as long as we do not have any agreement with anybody. The best is not to talk,” Wenger said.

“[We would need] to see off any interest of any other clubs, yes, and I don’t know if Man City is in for anybody. I don’t know what is their policy.”

“If the decision comes to finances with Man City we know we will be second best. That is well known.”
