Transfer News: Arsenal trigger release clause in striker’s contract, talks set to take place

vardyLeicester City hotshot Jamie Vardy could be about to depart the King Power Stadium after Premier League rivals Arsenal activated the striker’s release clause, according to BBC Sport.

Vardy has risen dramatically in the last four years, going from non-league star to Premier League winner and his form last season has caught the eye of several of the games big hitters, with the Foxes not facing a real struggle to keep hold of the 29-year-old.

The Leicester fans here in the Transfer Tavern are knocking back the tequila shots in order to try and drown out this terrible news, whilst the Gunners faithful dance on the tables in jubilation at the thought of Vardy turning out at the Emirates Stadium.

A fee of £21 million is likely to trigger the clause in Vardy’s contract and talks could take place before the player jets off to Euro 2016.

Vardy netted an astonishing 24 goals in the Premier League last season and with Arsenal searching for a striker, they clearly feel that the England man fits the bill.

One Arsenal fan is sat waiting for the Saturday night entertainment to begin here in the Tavern and he thinks that Vardy would score dozens of goals at Arsenal, stating that the service he would get from the Gunners midfield could make him lethal in front of goal.

Arsenal fans, would you welcome Vardy to the club? Would he be a good addition to the current crop of talent?
