Ezequiel Garay: The Man To Replace Vertonghen At Spurs This Summer Ezequiel Garay has been linked with a move to Man United for years. It's right up there with Sebastien Frey to Arsenal or Riquelme to Everton as transfer window staples. The Argentine may finally arrive in the Premier League this summer, but in a surprise twist, it's Spurs that are reportedly making a move for him. Spurs are making contingency plans for life without Jan Vertonghen and see Garay as the ideal replacement, according to the Daily Express. There are question marks about his ability to play at the top level, but he reads the game well, is composed on the ball and carries a threat from set-pieces, scoring seven goals so far this season. The futures of Vertonghen and Younes Kaboul are uncertain, Michael Dawson is a liability nowadays, and Vlad Chiriches has only impressed in flashes, so there's definitely a need for a centre-back at White Hart Lane. There have been reports that United will finally make a bid for Garay this summer as well, which could potentially mean the defender has to make a choice between the two struggling clubs.
