Jamie Vardy holds talks with Arsenal ahead of £20m move?

A report claims that Jamie Vardy has held talks with Arsene Wenger over a switch from Leicester City to Arsenal after his £20m release clause was met by the Gunners.

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy reportedly held face-to-face discussions with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger on Friday afternoon and is now ready to join the Gunners in a £20m deal.

The North London outfit have triggered the release clause in the Englishman's contract, leaving him free to negotiate a move away from the King Power Stadium.

Vardy is said to have been given time off after helping England to a 1-0 win over Portugal on Thursday evening, which he used to put the wheels in motion for a switch to the Gunners prior to the European Championship finals.

According to The Sun, Arsenal are desperate to confirm the transfer prior to the Three Lions kicking off their Euros campaign next weekend, with Vardy likely to be the club's second summer signing after the capture of Swiss midfielder Granit Xhaka last month.

Vardy's former side Fleetwood Town will receive a £6.8m windfall should Vardy, who scored 24 goals in the top flight last season to help Leicester to the Premier League title, sign on the dotted line for Arsenal.
