Ian Wright: This is the player Arsenal must sign this summer

Ian Wright wants Arsenal to sign Jamie Vardy from Leicester this summer...

Ian Wright has taken to social media to urge Arsenal to make a summer transfer bid to sign Jamie Vardy from Leicester City.

Vardy was one of the driving forces behind Leicester City’s stunning title win last season as he scored 24 goals in 36 league games for Claudio Ranieri’s men.

Arsenal are believed to be on the lookout for attacking reinforcements as Arsene Wenger looks to assemble a team capable of winning the Premier League title next season in what could be his last campaign in charge at The Emirates.

Arsenal finished second in the table last season and 10 points behind winners Leicester.

And Arsenal legend Wright used his personal Twitter account to urge his former employers to consider making a move for Vardy during the summer transfer window.
