The Leicester striker emerged as a shock target for Arsenal on Friday, as they reportedly made a £20million bid for his services according to the BBC.
According to reports, that price was the release clause set for Champions League clubs in his current deal at the Foxes.
So far it is unknown whether he will be tempted into a move to the Emirates Stadium, as he jetted off for Euro 2016 on Monday still mulling over the offer.
The potential move has been met with surprise as some suggest he will not fit into the style of play that Arsenal adopt, but Hartson is behind it, saying he would be a fantastic signing.
“I think he’s a good player,” he told talkSPORT. “He’s a sharp, he run in behind and he’ll be fantastic for the likes of Sanchez and Ozil because he’s a willing runner. I think he’d be a fantastic signing.”
Should Vardy decide to move to Arsenal this summer it will certainly be interesting to see how he would fit into their current line-up.
His direct style is in start contrast to the style that they currently employ, and it is hard to see how he would adapt to it.
However, that could also be a blessing for the Gunners as he would offer them that something different that they have long needed.
