At the time of writing this we still do not know whether the transfer of Jamie Vardy to Arsenal is a done deal or whether the player and his representatives are still thinking, negotiating or whatever else might be holding up the move. But if the Leicester City and England striker does fancy the move to north London as most people seem to think he will, including Olivier Giroud, then we should get some official confirmation before too long.
If and when that does happen, it may well be closely followed by the departure of one of the longest serving players in the current Arsenal squad, as Metro is reporting that we are on the verge of receiving a substantial offer for Theo Walcott from our Premier League and London rivals West Ham.
If the story is true and the Hammers do go ahead with an offer in the region of £25 million for the fleet footed forward, I find it hard to imagine us turning them down, especially as Vardy may well be set to occupy one of the wide forward roles that Theo usually takes up, when he is fit and in form that is.
Vardy would certainly leapfrog Walcott in the pecking order for the centre forward role that Walcott often tries to make us believe is his best position, and if Wenger is thinking of using Vardy as well as Olivier Giroud then it is hard to see how Walcott will get a game in any position.
So are we about to see two England internationals heading in different directions at Arsenal?
