Ezequiel Garay has caught the eyes of a number of clubs across Europe, and a move could be in the offing this summer.
The Argentine international helped his team to earn a clean sheet, as Simone Zaza scored to give Valencia a win in their La Liga fixture against Las Palmas.
Jose Mourinho is supposedly considering selling either Chris Smalling or Marcos Rojo, and the Portuguese coach would like to sign Garay as a replacement.
Pochettino, on the other hand, is also looking into the possibility of signing yet another defender, after having completed the signing of Davinson Sanchez from Ajax.
The Argentine defender is a target for Juventus as well, who sold their influential defender Leonardo Bonucci to AC Milan this summer. The Italian giants feel that Garay is a player who can effectively boost the quality of defence in their squad.
Meanwhile, Valencia can seriously consider selling their defender, after having bought Gabriel from Arsenal on a cheap. Understandably, the Spanish club will look out to earn significant profit from the sale of Garay.
