It clearly understood that Arsenal are looking to sign a perfect center forward in order to compete for the title next season. Now, BBC has stated that the Gunners are interested in signing Leicester City’s star man Jamie Vardy and are ready to trigger his £20m release clause.
Vardy was targeted Manchester United, but their new manager, Jose Mourinho has stepped down to register the interest as they are now following Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Vardy has a wonderful season with the Foxes as he helped the side to lift the Premier League title by scoring 24 goals in the 2015-16 season.
Jamie Vardy signed a new four-year-deal with the Foxes back in February 2015 and increased his wages to £80,000 per week and it is heavily reported that Arsene Wenger has set his eyes on the English international as he is ready to meet his release clause.
In an interview with Skysports last month, he was asked about his future at the King Power Stadium and he replied:
“I just won the Premier League and now I’m in the Champions League. I’m happy here.”
