Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are letting out a groan this evening, after hearing that one of their top targets has been urged not to seal a summer transfers.
Arsene Wenger’s side moved to activate Vardy’s £20m release-clause over the weekend and hoped to get a move finalised by the start of the week. However, the England international is delaying his decision until after the Three Lions’ Euro 2016 campaign in France.
Arsenal still hope to receive an answer on their approach before England’s opening game against Russia on Saturday evening but it remains to be seen whether Vardy will stick to that deadline and whether Arsenal will continue to pursue his signature if he does not- or if they’ll target someone else instead.
Our landlord thinks Vardy’s mind is already made though and he will move to Arsenal, otherwise he would have rejected them already.
Arsenal fans, what would happen if Vardy was to reject you? Let us know in the comments below!
