Former Arsenal's centre-back William Gallas believes the signing of Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy will be a major coup for the north london-based club.


Arsenal have triggered the 20 million pounds buy-out clause of the 29-year-old and he's set to swap camp for Arsene Wenger's side next  season.

Jamie Vardy's 24 goals in the premiership for Leicester City was enough to help the Foxes crowned as champions of the Barclays Premier League for the first time in the club's history.

Arsene Wenger is keen to bolster his attacking options and has identified the workaholic striker as his main target to add force to his side in his bid  to mount a title challenge next season.

However,Gallas, a former Chelsea and Tottenham defender has backed the decision to bring the lethal forward to Arsenal by his former manager and has praised his qualities.

"You Know Jamie Vardy has got a lot of football in him.He can make a lot of incursions when given a space on the field towards goals scoring opportunities.Now everybody knows Vardy as he has had a great season with leicester city and if he goes to Arsenal; I'm sure it will be a big signing for them," the 38-year-old retired footballer told Delali Atease of Luv FM prior to the peace game in Kumasi.

Jamie Vardy won the best player of the season award following his superb league campaign.
