Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy would 'score buckets of goals' for Arsenal, according to Piers Morgan. 

The club's celebrity fan, who often divides opinion with his rather controversial views about the Gunners, has suggested that Arsene Wenger should secure the signature of the Premier League's leading scorer.

Vardy, of course, has enjoyed a remarkable start to the season, scoring in his last 11 fixtures in all competitions.

In fact, Vardy became the first player to score in 11 consecutive Premier League matches after he fired home past Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea on Saturday evening. 

And, while the England international had his name plastered all over the back pages on Sunday, Arsenal failed to produce the goods against Norwich City at Carrow Road. 

With Frenchman Olivier Giroud leading the line, Arsene Wenger's side only managed to find the back of the net on one occasion as they were held to a 1-1 draw. 

Unsurprisingly, then, Morgan took to Twitter during yesterday's Premier League clash. The television personality tweeted: "We need a striker like Vardy. He'd score buckets of goals in this Arsenal team. #afc"

Brilliant Vardy 

Is Vardy really the right fit for Arsenal? He isn't a superstar name, of course, but his form has been outstanding recently. 

At 28-years-old, the forward really has come to prominence in England's elite division over the last few months, so he may well get his big move in the near future. 

But how does he compare to Arsenal's strikers? Well, while Vardy has scored 14 goals in 14 league games, Giroud has struck home seven goals in 14 outings. Theo Walcott, meanwhile, has scored just two league goals all season. Perhaps, then, as the Gunners go in search of securing the Premier League title, Vardy could prove a risk worth taking.
