Jamie Vardy set to make Arsenal decision today
Jamie Vardy’s release clause at Leicester triggered by Arsenal in past few days
June 6th, 2016
It appears that Leicester might have to defend their title next season without their record-breaking forward, with Jamie Vardy set for a switch to Arsenal this summer.
Vardy had an astonishing season for the Foxes and played a key role in landing them the 2015/16 Premier League title, although he has a release clause in his contract which has been triggered by Arsenal.
The forward has enjoyed a meteoric rise from non-league football to featuring in the Premier League although he is 29 and doesn’t have time on his side if he wants to play for one of the bigger clubs in the division.
It is thought that the player will make a decision on whether to make the switch on Monday, with Arsene Wenger keen to land a forward who plays a similar style to Luis Suarez.
The Uruguayan was a previous target for Wenger before staying at Liverpool and then making the move to Barcelona. However, it appears that Leicester are now powerless over whether Vardy signs for Arsenal.
