Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are expressing concerns of an imminent transfer embarrassment, after a reported move was seemingly delayed.
The Daily Mirror states that Arsenal are growing increasingly concerned that Jamie Vardy will snub the offer they have made the England international and the striker will elect to stay put at Leicester City.
Vardy scored 24-goals in the Premier League last season, to fire the Foxes towards the title, and Arsenal activated the player’s release clause over the weekend, tabling an offer that could see him become the second big signing of the Gunners summer.
However, Vardy was supposed to give Arsenal a definitive answer before flying to the European Championships with the England squad. No answer was forthcoming though and now, Arsenal are concerned he’ll reject their approach.
The 29-year-old is seen as the perfect striking addition for Arsenal, to fill a goalscoring void they’ve had gaping since Robin Van Persie left for Manchester United, but our landlord thinks they may have to look elsewhere.
Arsenal fans, would Jamie Vardy help you land the Premier League title? Let us know in the comments below!
