Guardian journalist Stuart James is reporting this evening that Arsenal have triggered Jamie Vardy’s release clause.
The 29 year old helped fire Leicester City to the Premier League title last season, scoring
20 24 26 lots of goals as Claudio Ranieri’s side did what was thought to be impossible and won the league.
With Arsenal on the lookout for a new striker, the story goes that Arsene Wenger has offered the £20m it would take to make him an Arsenal player.
Vardy is reportedly keen on a move, but Leicester, understandably, are keen to keep a player whose rise from lower leagues has been meteoric.
It still seems a little weird, so we’re erring on the side of doubt when it comes to this one, giving it a good 6 on the Poo-o-Meter.
Still, there seems to be something going on. So let’s see what happens.
