He scored 24 Premier League goals last season and was the second-highest scorer in the top flight, so it should be no surprise that Arsene Wenger is interested in Jamie Vardy. But would the Leicester forward suit Arsenals style of play, and is he what they need to challenge for the title? We look at the arguments for and against...YES - Arsenal lacked goals last season, Vardy would provide them We didnt have anybody with 20 goals in the league, so that is a handicap. Arsene Wenger didnt gloss over the facts when reflecting on Arsenals failed title challenge last season.Their top scorer in the league was Olivier Giroud with 16, three of which came on the final day against Aston Villa. Behind Giroud, Alexis Sanchez weighed in with 13, Mesut Ozil scored six and Aaron Ramsey and Theo Walcott got five goals apiece. Arsenal are interested in signing Jamie Vardy, according to Sky sources. But what has he said about a possible move from Leicester? The highest-scoring Arsenal striker behind Giroud was Danny Welbeck, with four.As much as there have been calls for the Gunners to strengthen the centre of defence and bolster their midfield - they have bolstered the latter with the signing of Granit Xhaka - goals were clearly a problem last season.They were the lowest scorers in the top four and their struggles were summed up by two games in the second half of the campaign - home draws with Southampton and Crystal Palace.Against Southampton in early February, the Gunners had 67% possession and 22 shots, but failed to score for the third game in a row as it finished goalless. Is Morata the answer? Arsenal have been linked with a move for Alvaro Morata, but is he the striker theyre looking for? Two months later, Sanchez gave the Gunners the lead against Palace but they failed to press home their advantage, despite 72% possession and 21 shots, and drew 1-1.So where would 29-year-old Vardy fit in at the Emirates?Presumably, if he joins, he will replace Giroud in the starting XI. Last season, Giroud had a conversion rate of 20%, while Vardys was 25.8%. Vardy had a better shooting accuracy and his minutes-per-goal record was 130.79, compared to 151.5 for Giroud.In December, Wenger called Vardy the best goal-scorer in the league, adding he thinks the striker is worth £30m. We need to stop the long balls and the defenders need to read his game and drop off when its needed. Wenger when asked how he will handle Vardys pace You have many players under him who have been paid much more, and who dont score that number of goals. Without a doubt, he is worth that money today.If there are question marks over his age, remember that Ian Wright did not join the Gunners until he was nearly 28, having also played non-league football a few years earlier.Wenger has called Vardy an explosive player, like Sanchez, and said this when reflecting on the season: Our movement has to be sharper and our efficiency in the final third has to be better.Vardy should help improve both of those facets.NO - Vardy would not suit Arsenals style of playThere are a couple of question marks over Vardys potential signing.Firstly, can he consistently deliver, season after season? So far in his career, he has not managed to do it.After scoring 31 goals for Fleetwood Town in 36 Conference Premier appearances (34 starts, two as substitute) in 2011/12, Vardy followed up with just four in 26 games in the Championship for Leicester the next season (17 starts, nine as sub). Vardys goalscoring record Season Club League starts Goals 2011/12 Fleetwood Town 34 31 2012/13 Leicester 17 4 2013/14 Leicester 36 14 2014/15 Leicester 26 5 2015/16 Leicester 36 24 In 2013/14, he netted 16 in 37 appearances (36 starts, one as sub) in the second tier, then five in 34 matches in the Premier League in 2014/15 (26 starts, eight as sub), before scoring 24 in 36 starts in 2015/16.Perhaps he has just taken a season to adjust to the new division each time; perhaps next season he will improve on his 24-goal haul.But does he suit Arsenals style?Leicester last season were at their best when they were counter-attacking at pace, winning the ball and then quickly moving it up the pitch. To witness Vardy at his most effective, just watch the two goals he scored against Sunderland in April.For the first, the Foxes won the ball in their own half, Danny Drinkwater played it over the top and Vardy ran clear to score. The second, late in the game, again came from a counter, with Vardy this time bursting past a defender and finishing. Both goals were direct. Teams would come to Anfield and sit back. Id sometimes only get space if I went wide. If Jamie Vardy did go to a top club, I feel hed get the same problems. Craig Bellamy How often do Arsenal get chances like that? Most of the time, especially at home, they face teams camped around their own box, with no space behind at all. When sides did this to Leicester towards the end of last season, Vardys goals largely dried up.Speaking to Sky Sports in December, Craig Bellamy recalled how he struggled for goals after moving to Liverpool.Teams would come to Anfield and sit back. Rafa Benitez always wanted me on the last man, trying to create space, always looking to go in behind but at different times, especially at home, there wasnt space. Id sometimes only get space if I went wide. If Jamie Vardy did go to a top club, I feel hed get the same problems.Would Arsenal change their style to accommodate Vardy? To get the best out of him, they may have to. Also See: Arsenal want to sign Vardy Arsenal finally spending big? Leicester season review Transfer Centre Christian Covington Jersey .

Woods caused the biggest sensation of the week Wednesday afternoon simply by driving his silver SUV into the parking lot at Valhalla. He has never arrived so late for a major championship and had so little time to prepare -- just nine holes at Valhalla, which he had not seen since winning the PGA Championship in 2000. But at least hes playing. That much was in doubt Sunday when he withdrew from the final round of the Bridgestone Invitational because of back pain that made it a chore to switch out of his golf shoes. Woods said he suffered a pinched nerve, but that it was not at all related to back surgery he had March 31 that kept him out of golf for three months. He said his trainer adjusted the area above the sacrum. "Once he put it back in, the spasms went away," he said. "And from there, I started getting some range of motion." The latest injury occurred when Woods tried to play a shot from just above a deep bunker on the second hole at Firestone, and his momentum caused him to land hard in the sand. He kept playing, and hit some horrific shots before deciding to withdraw after a tee shot on the ninth hole. That was only his third tournament since his return from surgery, leading to concern that he might be done for the year. "It was a different pain than what I had been experiencing," Woods said. "So I knew it wasnt the site of the surgery. It was different and obviously it just the sacrum." His arrival put some life into what had been an ordinary week. Dozens of cameras captured Woods putting on his shoes with ease at his car. He got a big cheer just walking onto the practice range and the crowd was six-deep down the first hole, about like it was for the Ryder Cup at Valhalla six years ago. In the nine holes he played with Steve Stricker, Davis Love III and Harris English, Woods looked the same as he did last week. He drilled his driver down the first fairway. He badly pulled his tee shot on the third hole. It was a mixture of good and bad, about what can be expected from someone who has played only nine rounds in the last five months. "Nothing great," Woods said. "Its only Wednesday." Woods tees off Thursday alongside Phil Mickelson and Padraig Harrington. He simply said, "Yes," when asked if he expected to win, which seemed to be a tall order considering his return from surgery. Woods missed the cut by four shots at the Quicken Loans National, had his worst 72-hole finish in a major at the British Open and was in the middle of the pack at Firestone when he withdrew.dddddddddddd. Barring a victory, this likely will be his last tournament for at least six weeks. Woods is not eligible for the FedEx Cup playoffs, and he hasnt given U.S. captain Tom Watson much reason to pick him for the Ryder Cup. Woods said he would have to "play well" to give reason for Watson to take him. "Thats the only thing I can control," Woods said. "Try to go out there and win this event. Thats all Im focused on." Watson has said he wanted Woods on the team if he was healthy and playing well. About the time Woods arrived at the course, Watson was successfully dodging questions about his chances of making the team. "Its speculation whats going to happen," Watson said. "I cant tell you whats going to happen with Tiger." The excitement over his arrival was sure to be tempered by the reality of the task ahead. Not only has Woods gone more than a year without winning -- and six years since he last won a major -- Rory McIlroy has replaced him as the overwhelming favourite. McIlroy went wire-to-wire at the British Open, then rallied from a three-shot deficit to win the World Golf Championship at Firestone. Sergio Garcia was a runner-up both times. Garcia, who went 0-3 playing in the final group with Woods at three majors, was asked about similarities between the two. "When they are both at their best, to me it seems like Rory is less afraid of hitting driver," he said. "And when hes hitting it as well as hes hitting it now, hes hitting it very far and quite straight. So its a little bit of an advantage at that point." Woods might have lost his advantage from being a past champion at Valhalla. He missed the Ryder Cup in 2008 while recovering from knee surgery, and course architect Jack Nicklaus has made plenty of changes, particularly on some of the greens. Woods spent much of his time chipping from collection areas that werent around 14 years ago. "Its a totally different golf course than what I played in 2000," he said. "The greens are all different. I have my book from 2000 -- its useless. Theres some new things that we have to learn out there." With that, he headed to the back nine to walk the remainder of the course with his putter. He had 15 hours before teeing off in the final major of the year.
