Arsenal star has been persuading striker to join Gunners – report
Jack Wilshere has been working to convince Jamie Vardy that a move to Arsenal is right for him, say reports
Jack Wilshere has played a key role in convincing Jamie Vardy to consider a transfer to Arsenal this summer, according to reports.
The north London side are believed to be on the verge of concluding a deal to bring the striker to Emirates Stadium from Leicester City after triggering the release clause in the forward’s contract.
Both Wilshere and Vardy are currently on international duty with England in the lead-up to this summer’s Euro 2016 tournament in France.
And Goal is reporting that Wilshere has been playing a key role in convincing Vardy that a move to The Emirates is the right choice for him.
Vardy played a key role in helping Leicester City win the Premier League title last season, as he scored 24 goals in the top flight.
Arsenal have been looking to bolster their attacking options after their second-placed finish in the table last term as they ended up 10 points behind the champions.
