Leicester Chief Gives Update On Jamie Vardy

The Gunners will soon be receiving an update on whether the Foxes ace Jamie Vardy will be moving to the Emirates Stadium this summer or not.

The news is according to the Foxes chief Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, who has make it known publicly he is confident that the England forward will stay with the Premier League champions.

According to the Daily Mail, he said, “You will see the news very soon,”

“But I think he will stay. I think, so let’s see. We need to build the team. We keep continuing to believe that we can do something special in the Premier League and the [UEFA] Champions League."

Recently, a report from Dean Jones of Bleacher Reports said that the striker is edging towards staying with his current employers.

As noted in the piece, the Gunners triggered the 29-year-old's release clause of £20 million recently and they also offered him a lucrative contract worth in surplus of £100,000 a week to tempt the England frontman into considering moving to the Emirates.

Reportedly, Vardy will make his final decision as to whether he will be moving the Emirates after the conclusion of the 2016 UEFA European Championships.

The 29-year-old England forward made an amazing contribution as a second-half substitute when he scored the equalizing goal for England against Wales on Thursday; his goal triggered a memorable comeback, with the Three Lions running out 2-1 winners.

As noted by Squawka Football, following his 24 Premier League goals in 2015-16, the Foxes frontman has showed his class at the international stage too:
Moving to the Emirates Stadium this summer could prove to be a difficult challenge for the ace, who may not be guaranteed a starting place. 

However, if he choses to stay at Leicester and leads them into the Champions League next season, it would be thrilling for the striker and would be seen as a show of loyalty to the club that gave him a chance to shine at the elite level.

On the other hand, if he turns down a move to Arsenal, a chance of him featuring for any other major English club may not come around again.

From my perspective, even if the Gunners actually succeed in bringing the ace to the Emirates, it would be intriguing to see just what team manager Arsene Wenger would select as a result.

In the end, as shown in the Leicester City’s dramatic play that brought them the English Premier League League title, in order to get the best out of the Vardy, you need to be willing to get the ball supplied to him quickly. In order words, the Gunners' present style of playing is often incompatible with Jamie Vardy.
