  • Arsenal are beating Liverpool and Manchester United in the race to sign Riyad Mahrez

Coquelin has had to make do with a role in the Gunners' second-string squad this season.

The Gunners have conceded 28 times in 22 games in the Premier League this season to leave the north London side five points adrift of fourth-placed Liverpool FC in the race to secure a Champions League spot.

Jonny Evans was a rumoured target for Manchester City in the summer and has since been linked with a number of other top-flight clubs, including Arsenal.

"It's a possibility but nothing is decided".

"The transfer window should be banned to keep our life a bit more focused on football".

However, speaking in his press conference ahead of Arsenal's Carabao Cup clash with Chelsea, Wenger denied any agreement between the Baggies and Arsenal. As long as we don't have any agreement with anybody, I believe the best is not to talk.

Arsene Wenger says Arsenal could end up being "second best" to Manchester City in a bidding war for Jonny Evans and did not rule out a January exit for Alexis Sanchez.

Speaking at his news conference ahead of Wedenesday's League Cup semi-final clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Wenger conceded a battle for Evans with Man City would only end up with one victor.

Completed in 1983, the 58-storey tower contains offices, restaurants, a hotel and Trump's private residence. It took about an hour to extinguish the blaze at the high-rise building on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.

City would be getting an experienced global player who is proven in the Premier League and the underrated defender has improved since joining West Brom from Manchester United for £6m in 2015.

Other Premier League clubs are also interested in Evans but can not match the lure of European football for a player who was on the bench for Manchester United's Champions League final defeat by Barcelona in 2009.

"If the decision comes to finances with Man City we know we will be second best".
