After Arsenal found out today once and for all that the England international striker Jamie Vardy would be staying at Leicester City for next season, the pressure on Arsene Wenger to find another front man to supplement the goals of Olivier Giroud has just gone up a notch.
One thing the Vardy saga has showed us is that the Frenchman does agree with the vast majority of the football world about our need for more firepower and that can only be a good thing after recent transfer windows. The problem now is who to get and if we are looking at a real top quality player up front then Wenger needs to move fast before all the best ones are snapped up.
In that case I am hoping that Arsenal are one of the Premier League clubs that an Evening Standard report claims have already made offers to Real Madrid about their talented young Spain international Alvaro Morata, who is going back to his former club after they activated a buy back clause in his contract with Juventus.
Morata may not have the most prolific goal scoring record but he is still young and improving all the time and with his very good all round game he seems the perfect fit for Arsenal. The transfer price being talked about is around £40 million and we know that Arsenal could easily afford it, so has Wenger already begun transfer talks with Madrid over this highly rated front man?
