West Brom boss Alan Pardew prepared for possible Jonny Evans departure

Do I want to lose him?

But with the prospect of Arsenal also coming back in for the Manchester United youth product, West Brom retain hope that Evans could still raise something close to the £30m that they were holding out for in August.

West Brom dealt with interest in Evans throughout the summer and rebuffed bids from Arsenal and Leicester City worth £25m ($33.5m) before the deadline. He was terrific for me against Crystal Palace, I can only go on his performance and I thought he was outstanding. Of course not. Do I fear losing him?

'You are never confident when you've got great players because other clubs want great players so your best players are always vulnerable.

With Everton struggling for firepower so far this season, Walcott could provide the Toffees with a few more options up front. Have your say in the comments section, below and on our Facebook page.

Despite the Baggies struggling to play well, Evans has been one of the players that has been starring for them regularly, so much so that Manchester City tried to recruit him during the summer transfer window but had their approach turned down. "Of course I do", Pardew, who was appointed West Bromwich's manager last week, told the press on Thursday.

"We need to turn up on Saturday afternoon and we need to win the game".

"A win would lift the confidence of the players". A six-pointer is when there's two games to go and you need to win six points to stay in the division. Football is about results.

Pardew has set his players a target of nine wins in order to retain their top-flight status, and the new boss is keen for three points to be recorded at the Liberty Stadium. "Hopefully after Saturday it'll be eight".
