Jamie Vardy is on the verge of joining Arsenal following a reported £20 million offer and a subsequent £120,000 a week contract, according to The Mirror.
The England striker is yet to decide his future however, with Leicester preparing a counter offer as they are desperate to hold on to the talisman of their title winning campaign.
However, Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has spoken out, stating that Vardy personally told him that he ‘wants to join Arsenal’.
Whether or not the above is true, it will certainly have Foxes fans quaking in their boots and Gunners fans sounding the trumpets as the striker’s future hangs in the balance.
Vary scored 27 goals in all competitions last season, helping his side to the arguably most incredible sporting achievement of all time by winning the Premier League against all, or at least 5000-1 odds.
If Arsene Wenger is to complete the move for the Englishman, he would be acquiring himself one of the League’s top strikers and certainly one of the most inform in Europe.
The move for Vardy is unusual however in that it is not a ‘Wenger’ move, and has had many questioning whether it be the right one for the club. Here is why Vardy is not your run-of-the-mill Arsenal signing ….
