shashi / 26 June 2015

Arsenal have linked with a £13million move for Argentine Ezequiel Garay. The cntral defender has been linked with a move to Arsenal’s rivals Manchester United for last 3-4 seasons.

Garay, 28 is seen as one of the most accomplished central defenders in the game right now and Arsenal are considering a £13million bid for the Argentine.

Garay was heavily linked with a move to Premier League last summer but opted to join Russian Side Zenit St Peterburg from Benfica for a mere £4million. However, according to Daily Star, Garay has grown unhappy with life in Russia and is again seeking a move to Premier League.

Arsenal could be in need for a new central defender after it appears Real Madrid are lining up a £21million for their key man Laurent Koscielny as a replacement for departing Sergio Ramos.

Ramos is edging towards a move to Manchester United in a deal worth £50million. That is the reason why Arsenal are in line to make a £13million bid for Ezequiel Garay.

Arsenal currently have Per Mertesacker Calum Chambers, Gabriel Pauliste as the other central defensive options apart from Koscielny but if the Frenchman is to leave, Arsene Wenger would need an assured figure at the back to see through Arsenal’s challenge at multiple competitions.

Elsewhere, Arsenal have finalized a deal for Petr Cech who has completed a medical ahead of his £10.9million switch from Chelsea.
