Club legend urges Arsene Wenger to sign Euro 2016 star: "He would strengthen Arsenal"


Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown says Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy would add quality to Arsene Wenger's squad.

The Gunners have struggled to find a proper No. 9 in recent seasons but the Englishman could be just what they need according to the 49-year-old.

"If you look at Vardy and you look at what Arsenal don't have down the middle with their strikers – someone who likes to run behind a defence – then if you feed him he's a real handful and as good as anyone," Keown told 888sport.

"He'd be a player who would strengthen Arsenal and give them more variation to their play which they lack down that central area.

"They have already made their intention clear [with Granit Xhaka's signing].

"It's going to be a very competitive summer and we could well see the best ever Premier League next season with the set of managers coming to the table in Guardiola and Mourinho revisiting their rivalry in Manchester and Jurgen Klopp continuing to develop Liverpool.

"Arsene Wenger's longevity is really remarkable and then you have Chelsea who had an awful season last year and they can't have that again.

"The competition between these clubs doesn't start on the 13th of August, it starts now by looking for the best players and retaining your players.

"There is no doubt Arsenal have to be competitive but the Euros have got in the way of a lot of activity. It's like the lull before the storm at the moment because there is going to be a lot of fierce competition for players."
