Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are thrilled to hear that they are bidding for another centre back after Metro revealed that they made a £13m bid for Zenit St Petersburg defender Ezequiel Garay.
The Argentinian has been linked with a move to the Premier League ever since his Benfica days but after his move to the Russian Premier League, it looks as though he is finally ready for a move to England.
The 28-year-old is reportedly unhappy in Russia and this is fuelling the rumours linking him with a move to the Gunners.
Andre Villas-Boas has done all he can to persuade the defender to stay at Zenit but it looks as though his future is out of the former Chelsea manager’s hands.
If Arsene Wenger can land his man it would leave him with plenty of strong options in defence, which is something you haven’t been able to say about Arsenal’s squad for a long time.
