Arsenal legends urges club to forget Vardy and set sights on Euro 2016 forward

lukakulukakulukakuArsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are nodding in agreement with comments made by a club legend, who has urged his beloved side to move on with their transfer business.

TalkSport quotes former Gunners defender Paul Merson as urging Arsenal to forget about signing Jamie Vardy and suggests Arsene Wenger should target Everton’s Romelu Lukaku instead.

“If Arsenal come calling for you, and you don’t come in the first 24 hours then you aren’t signing. I mean, you are talking about one of the biggest clubs in the world. Everybody wants to play for Arsenal.”

“I think he’s (Lukaku) a bit different, a bit stronger up front which would help Arsenal,” he added. I can see why Chelsea let him go; he was one of them that needed the ball over the top. But he was a young kid and I think he’s learnt his trade now. It just depends how much he is.”

Arsenal would have to pay a staggering fee to convince Everton to part with Lukaku, although the Belgian international is likely to move on, but our landlord also believes it’s a move worthing making.

Would Lukaku be better for Arsenal than Vardy? Let us know in the comments below!
