Jamie Vardy is expected to be announced as an Arsenal player in the next couple of hours, this is as Wenger has triggered his release clause. Although Leicester City have countered Arsenal’s offer, it is expected that Vardy will take up the one in a life time opportunity of signing for Arsenal, a club that is head and shoulder above Leicester City despite the Foxes’ heroics last season.
After Vardy, Arsenal are said to be working on a shock deal to sign Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City as Wenger sees the Algerian as a move reliable option on the right Wing for Arsenal. With reports claiming Walcott will remain at Arsenal next season, it appears Wenger is going to let Joel Campbell and Chamberlain leave and bring in Mahrez.
Mahrez who scored 17 goals and created 11 assists last season has been linked with various clubs including PSG and Chelsea but Arsenal have a massive chance of getting him as the player himself has confirmed he doesn’t fancy a move to PSG as he would rather remain in England and with Chelsea looking in disarray and certainly not going to be playing in Europe next season, Arsenal may have a free road to getting the African.
He reportedly has a release clause worth £20m ($28.7m) same as Jamie vardy which Arsenal will trigger once the Jamie Vardy deal is done and dusted.
