It will be a busy summer in England with clubs all around the country making plenty of moves for potential transfer targets.

Of the many clubs that will strengthen considerably this summer, London franchise Arsenal seems to be in a hurry to get the work done.

Just a week after the end of the previous season, the Gunners unveiled their first summer signing in Granit Xhaka and have been constantly linked with some of the best talents in the world.

However, one Leicester City star Jamie Vardy has been on the top of the target list for the club since the end of the previous season.

The England international was in supreme form last season helping his side to a historic Premier League title. His exploits with the Foxes has seen him linked with a number of clubs including Manchester United, Arsenal, and Liverpool.

However, the Emirates outfit seemed to take a big step by lodging a £20m bid for the striker that was duly rejected by the Premier League Champions.

Arsene Wenger the manager of the side revealed to the media that Vardy is not making the move this summer shattering the hopes of many a fan.

However, Wenger seems to have learnt his lesson from the last summer and is still desperate to add some firepower to his side. And it is now understood that the London club have turned their attention to elsewhere in Europe.

According to recent reports, the Gunners have turned their attention from Jamie Vardy to Michy Batshuayi of Marseille for a potential move this summer.

The 22-year old has was in red-hot form for the League 1 side where he scored 17 goals and picked up another 9 assists from just 36 league games for the club.

He is a much sought out youngster in Europe at the moment and will surely cost Wenger on the higher side. But it seems that the Gunners are going all in for the Belgian international after Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli (a reliable source) tweeted about the move.

Here is the tweet:

Though there is no official announcement of an interest in the 22-year old, Arsenal, who finished second in the Premier League last season will need to improve on the quality and depth in their squad and Batshuayi fits the bill perfectly.

Do you think Arsenal should spill the cash for the 22-year old?
