It seems like Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning to go all-out next season.
A couple of days ago, news broke out that the Gunners have triggered the release clause of Leicester City Jamie Vardy.
Various reliable media outlets and personalities have, since then, hinted that Vardy’s move to Emirates Stadium is all but done.
Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud, following France’s 3-0 win over Scotland last night, confirmed that the England international is set to join the North London club.
The France international also spilled beans on further potential transfer activity at his current club. The 29-year-old claimed that club manager Arsene Wenger wants to bring “one or maybe two strikers’ in the transfer window.
Giroud: "The boss wanted to sign at least one or two strikers, so I expected a top striker & I think it will benefit the club." #AFC

Arsenal have been strongly linked with the likes of Alvaro Morata and Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the media, and Giroud’s comments have suggested that Vardy may not be the only forward signing at the club in the summer.
Meanwhile, Vardy is expected to complete his move before the Three Lions fly to France for Euro Championships on Monday.
