- Liverpool might have an interest in Jonny Evans, reckons Alan Smith
- Sky Sports regular states the need for central defensive improvements this winter

There was a mixed, but largely negative reaction this afternoon to the suggestion that Jonny Evans could be a January window transfer target.
The Northern Irishman has been very good at West Brom for a few years now, with Manchester City and Arsenal keen in the summer.
Today, Sky Sports presenter Alan Smith claimed he believed Liverpool would ‘definitely’ be interested in the centre-back this winter.
Jurgen Klopp’s no.1 target is still Virgil van Dijk, but at some point, we’ll start looking for alternatives, surely?
“But how they’d love to get Virgil van Dijk in, maybe that ship has sailed. It sounds like Pep Guardiola might be interested in the Southampton centre-half.
“I think there are still questions to be answered. Yes I could (see Jonny Evans signing), definitely, definitely.”
Here’s how Reds reacted online.
Remember, Evans was a loyal Manchester United servant for some time. For this reason he might refuse a switch anyway.
I’d defo take Jonny Evans at Liverpool. Proper defender and an organiser https://t.co/6TymCbb7ZC

I don’t know where this Jonny Evans to Liverpool nonsense came from, but if that’s who we end up with we might as well just give up.
We all know what’s needed & he most certainly isn’t it. We need to add starting 11 players now, not more squad players

If he was cheapish and up for it I'd take him in January.
You seriously prefer Klavan/Lovren over Evans?

Saying Yeh he’d be an upgrade on Klavan is daft, get proper players in or fuck off

Reckon Evans is good enough for Liverpool?

Bravo Echo, Evans only looked capable the other night because he had at least 8 players crowded around him every time we went forward. He wouldn't have that luxury at Liverpool as we go out to try and win games.
