Arsenal transfer news: Jamie Vardy set to join Gunners before Euro 2016

  • Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy is set for a big move away from the club
  • The 29 year old has reportedly held talks with Arsenal ahead of Euro 2016

Leicester City's star striker Jamie Vardy looks set to move to Arsenal in the coming hours according to a host of sources, after the London club activated his £22m release clause.


News broke on Friday night that Arsenal had activated the minimum fee release clause in the 29 year old's contract at Leicester City and reportedly he will officially join the Gunners before the end of the weekend on a deal believed to be worth around £120,000 a week.

Vardy's rise to stardom has been well documented. Just a few seasons ago the Sheffield-born striker was plying his trade in the lower leagues for Fleetwood Town but last year managed to break the Premier League record for goals in consecutive games on his way to lifting the Premier League at the King Power.

But rumours are abound that he's now set to ditch the side he won the title with for a move to the capital and a huge wage to go with it.

And what's more, his wife Rebekah seemed to inadvertently confirm that a move was imminent with this tweet:



So with Vardy looking set for a move to the Emirates Stadium could the majority of Arsenal's transfer business for the summer already been done? The addition of Xhaka wasn't a cheap one so with Vardy's arrival Wenger may not have much money left to spend if he wants to add to his squad during the rest of the window.

It has to be said that this signing doesn't seem to fit into Arsene Wenger's philosophy. Will the Frenchman be looking to change his system and style of play, or is Vardy more likely to be used as an option from the bench when things aren't going well?
