Leicester City owner Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha has spoken about Arsenal’s interest in Vardy and the Foxes chief sounds confident of holding on to the Englishman, as per Daily Mail.
The Gunners have been heavy favorites to sign Vardy after they activated his release clause and the striker was also expected to appear for a medical.
However, the move failed to materialize as the Englishman failed to turn up after reportedly receiving a contract offer which was far more than the current contract.
The frontman left for National duty without making a decision, but reports later suggested that he will stay with the Foxes.
Leicester City owner Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha has now confirmed that we will know his decision pretty soon, while also sounding that the striker is likely to stay at King Power. According to Daily Mail, he said:
‘You will see the news very soon,’ Srivaddhanaprabha told Sportsmail.
‘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 Champions League.
‘The Champions League is going to be amazing for Leicester, so let’s see. Leicester is the underdog and we can still be the underdog.’
The Vardy transfer is playing out like a movie climax that will be just apt for the movie that is planned to be made very soon. It started out to be a silly gossip which gained traction as hours passed by
It started out to be a silly gossip which gained traction as hours passed by and at a point looked like a sure-shot signing. However, it seems to have fallen off, if we go by the comments and reports over the past few days.
The Vardy deal hasn’t been welcomed by many Arsenal fans, but although it’s not a deal made in heaven it could have been a big boost if the Gunners could have pulled it off thanks the pedigree the Englishman possesses in front of goal.
Coming back to the current scenario, it more or less looks to be a dead deal unless there is a real shock or two remaining. There aren’t many big name strikers available in the market except for Morata who has big salary demands which should put the Gunners interest away.
It seems Wenger has to dig deep among his scouts if he wants to sign a striker who could propel the Gunners to their first Premier League title in years.
