Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have received a promising boost for their transfer plans this summer, with a manager admitting he’s helpless to stop a star completing a move.
Metro quote Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri as stating he can’t do anything to stop Jamie Vardy from joining Arsenal, as the final decision rests in the hands of the 24-goal England international.
Vardy saw his release clause activated by the Gunners before the European Championship last week and Arsenal wanted a decision from the forward before he jetted off to France. However, Vardy delayed that decision and both clubs now face an anxious wait.
Whilst the delay will be unnerving to Arsenal supporters, comments from Ranieri to Sky Italia certainly give the Gunners a vast boost:
‘We want to keep him, Arsenal have said they will pay the full release clause, but he hasn’t accepted yet. He gets the last word.’
Our landlord feels Vardy will accept Arsenal’s offer, particularly if he continues to get overlooked whilst on England duty.
Will Vardy swap Leicester for Arsenal? Let us know in the comments below!
