Arsenal are said to have trigged a release clause in Vardy’s contract believed to be worth around £20m.

And former Sky Sports presenter Keys believed that the proposed transfer highlights how insignificant new contract offers can be.

Keys tweeted:

Arsenal have already signed Granit Xhaka this summer as Wenger moved quickly to bolster his squad ahead of what could be his final season in charge at the club.

The Frenchman has found himself under pressure at The Emirates after his side finished last season without a trophy and 10 points behind champions Leicester City.
