- The West Brom defender has been linked with other Premier League clubs

- The Northern Ireland international played under the tutelage of Alex Ferguson

Jose Mourinho is reportedly considering a move for West Brom defender Jonny Evans for a second spell with Manchester United.

According to The Sun, the Portuguese coach believes the experienced Northern Ireland international would be a good addition this summer.

Despite boasting of the second best defence in the Premier League after champions, Manchester City, Mourinho still feels there is the need for improvement.

And reports have it that if the Baggies get relegated into the Championship, the 30-year-old would be available for £3m, due to the release clause in his contract.

Mourinho’s predecessor Louis van Gaal offloaded Evans in 2015 for £6m but his stock has risen under sacked coach Tony Pulis after two impressive seasons at The Hawthorns.

Both Leicester and Manchester City had £10m and £18m bids were rejected by West Brom last summer for the center-back.

Arsenal also failed in their pursuit in the January window for the Northern Irishman as the Baggies turned down an offer of £10m plus full-back Mathieu Debuchy.

The Foxes are said to still be interested in signing the Northern Ireland international as a number of clubs said to be interested in their centre-back Harry Maguire.

Evans made 198 appearances across all competitions for United after coming through their ranks at the academy at Old Trafford.

Under Alex Ferguson, Evan,s helped the Red Devils win three Premier League titles, two League Cups, four Community Shields and the FIFA Club World Cup.
