Arsenal fans are very accustomed to having very frustrating transfer windows, but now it seems that after last seasons weak capitulation to Leicester in the title race, Arsene Wenger is going all out to beef up the team in important areas by stealing players from the Foxes.
Having secured in Granit Xhaka, the top class holding midfielder we have all been yearning for, it seems Wenger is now going all out to sign last years surprise package striker Jamie Vardy. Not only has the news that Arsenal have activated Vardy’s buy out clause been announced on Sky and the BBC, the Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri has also confirmed the news. When asked about the rumours by the Italian footy paper Gazzetta dello Sport, Ranieri said: “Yes, it’s all true.”
So we can stop worrying about the deal just being another Higuain or Benzema windup that we have grown used to over the years. Another Leicester player we have been strongly linked with is N’Golo Kante, and the French international has admitted that he has had offers, but he states that he will not be making any decisions on where he plays next season until after the Euro2016 competition is over.
He said in the Mirror: “I am a Leicester player.
“For now, I have not taken a decision even if I have been made offers.
“It will be great to play in the Champions League. I will decide my future after the Euros.”
Arsenal have got a great deal with Jamie Vardy’s 20million buy-out clause, and it is being reported that Kante has the same figure in his own contract. Wouldn’t it be great if Arsenal could get two title winners for the price of one?
