Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud says Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy is keen on a move to the Gunners- in an interview with Sky Sports.


In this modern age of football, it’s evident that contract extensions mean nothing, as Leicester’s hero looks to make a shock move to Arsenal.

Named Football Writers’ player of the year, Vardy was a sharpshooter in front of goal this season scoring 24 Premier League goals.

His remarkable rise has generated interest from a number of clubs looking to pen his signature.

“I have been told that Jamie wants to join us and it’s very good news for us. I think we can be complimentary and that’s all I can say,” Giroud told Sky Sports News HQ. 


Arsenal reportedly triggered Vardy’s release clause which states in his contract that he is entitled to a move to clubs playing in the Champions League for £22 million. 

Leicester City are yet to comment but one former star has already made his opinions known.
