Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has urged the Gunners to sign Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy.

Vardy led Leicester to a shock Premier League title win this season at the expense of Arsenal, setting an individual record for scoring in consecutive matches along the way.

He was crowned the Football Writers Player of the Year, and struck 24 goals in 36 league games.

Vardy is in the England squad for Euro 2016 this summer where he is in contention to start for his country.

Signing Vardy from Leicester though will be far from easy for Arsenal, who would have to not only convince the Foxes to sell, but the player himself, having signed a new contract months earlier.

With Champions League football to look forward to next season, Vardy has everything he needs at the King Power Stadium, while his potential price tag could put off Gunners boss Arsene Wenger in any case, who refuses to pay over the odds for a player if he feels a deal does not represent his own assessed value.

On this occasion, Wright's wishes are unlikely to be met, but if Vardy scores in prolific manner for England this summer, perhaps the Arsenal hierarchy will start taking notice.
