When the news broke that Arsenal had paid the release cause in Jamie Vardy’s contract, the punters in the Transfer Tavern let out a collective “what?”
Whilst Arsenal were rumoured to be going after some of Europe’s best talent; they instead went for 29 year old English striker from Sheffield, who was playing non-league football just a few years ago.
Certainly, Vardy was unstoppable in the Premier League last season, but with news reports placing the bid at anywhere between £20 and £30 million; that is a lot of money to be talking about for a player that has really only had one season at the top.
Lots of names have been passed around here in the tavern as potential Arsenal striker targets over the weekend as people try to get their heads around this transfer.
Our landlord has collected a few of his favourite names from his punters, so lets take a look at the FIVE strikers that Arsenal should buy rather than Jamie Vardy
