Olivier Giroud has confirmed that Jamie Vardy wants to join Arsenal in the world’s worst kept secret.

Speaking after scoring a brace for his country against Scotland on Saturday (Laurent Koscielny scored France’s third), the Frenchman was all smiles as he told the reporter, “I’ve been told that Jamie wants to join us, it’s very good news for us.

“I think we can be complimentary. That’s all I can say, he’s a fantastic player, so, yeah.”

Hear for yourself:

According to reports Vardy will undergo his Arsenal medical today (Sunday) with the deal expected to be announced before he heads off with England to France for the Euros, doubling the Arsenal interest as he does.
