In a news that is the closest to an official confirmation that Jamie Vardy will be playing for Arsenal next season, Leicester City manager while talking to the press in his country Italy, has revealed that Jamie Vardy is on his way to Arsenal this summer. The Gunners had two weeks ago triggered the release clause of the PFA player of the year for the 2015/2016 season. However, a counter offer from Leicester City got the player thinking hence there has been a delay.
Ranieri was asked if Jamie Vardy will be playing for Arsenal next season to which he asked “Yes, it is true”. I guess after this, Arsenal fans can go to party. Every journalist that has claimed the player wants to stay at Leicester City can’t possibly know more than the manager of the team. Vardy must certainly have told Ranieri something for him to believe the English man will be donning Arsenal’s colours next season.
And should Vardy sign for Arsenal, it will be a massive coup for us. He is the score of striker that will see Ozil creating assists upon assists per match. His pace and run behind the defenders will perfectly suit Ozil. And for 20 million, he could well be the deal of the summer.
Realistically, it is unthinkable that Vardy at 29 will reject an offer to play for Arsenal to stay at Leicester City. He surely knows this is his last chance of making a big money move to a big club.
