Arsenal have made a move to sign Jamie Vardy from Leicester City in a £20milliom deal, reports the Guardian.

The Gunners look set to be busy this summer as they look to bounce back from what has been perceived as a disappointing season for them.

They have already added Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Granit Xhaka to their ranks in a reported £35million deal.

A striker is thought to be top of their wish list, with that area of the team having struggled again this past season.

And it seems that Leicester City star Jamie Vardy is one of their top targets, with the Guardian reporting they have triggered the release clause in his contract at Leicester City.

According to the report, the striker, who finished as the second highest goalscorer in the Premier League last season, would end up costing the Gunners around £20million.

They face a fight with the Foxes to secure him though, with it also claimed they could offer Vardy a new deal to try and keep him at the Kingpower Stadium.

The striker only signed a new contract in February and is a key part of the club’s plans for the future as they look to build on their Premier League title success.
