Arsenal closing in on quick-fire deal for prolific £20m marksman, huge developments this weekend

Arsenal expect to complete a sensational swoop on Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy THIS weekend, according to the Daily Mail.

The 29-year old forward only penned a new deal with the title winners earlier this year after he helped them to the most sensational Premier League victory of all time, though it is thought to have included a clause that allows him to leave to a fellow Champions League team.

Having notched 24 goals this season, the England international is believed to be a £20m target for the Gunners as they plot their own assault on the title.

A lack of fire-power undermined their attempts to keep up with the Foxes, with Olivier Giroud constantly coming under fire.

Arsene Wenger has already signed Swiss international midfielder Granit Xhaka for big money and his attentions now look to have turned to the non-league sensation.

It is claimed that the former Fleetwood Town man would command a salary of over £100k-per-week and discussions about a move to London have rapidly progressed.
