According to British newspapers, Arsenal are in secret talks with a “World-Class” No.9 but the name of the striker has not been revealed. According to British sources and some tweets that surfaced online, it seems the striker in question is Jamie Vardy who scored 24 goals and was voted PFA Player of the Year.
“Arsenal have signed Jamie Vardy. Completed medical last Friday. £20m.” — Josh Lloyd (@joshualloyd_) May 25,
“Wenger needs Vardy; if he got him then I’ll be happy. However, until then – wengerout- #arsenal #afc” — Eddy (@eddywelbeck) May 25, 2016
Arsenal are currently handicapped up front with Danny Welbeck set for a Long-term layoff and Theo Walcott supposedly set to leave the club this summer.
With this, Arsene Wenger is set to make a move for a striker in the coming months and Jamie Vardy has been on his list of potential buys.
However, a move from the King Power stadium for Jamie Vardy seems unlikely after Leicester City FC agreed a new five-year deal with their star striker who led them to their first Premier League title.
Vardy is not the only striker linked to the club as Juventus striker Alvaro Morata has also been heavily linked as an exit from Turin is likely. The Spain international is valued at £30m.
