Leicester City begs to retain Jamie Vardy for an extra year as Arsenal close conclude £20m deal
Last weekend information was sent out that Arsenal had submitted a £20 million offer for Jamie Vardy with Premier League winning sensation team Leicester City, a figure that matched the attacker’s exit clause in his contract.
Leicester City seemed incapable at the moment to keep Jamie Vardy as his release clause has been triggered by Arsenal who has been solicited with his agent and the player to review his stay with Leicester for one more season.
Arsenal has presented a four year contract who will be telling Leicester today if he will accept or reject the offer.
The Foxes must now decide whether to meet up with Arsenal’s contract offer, which in total is £100,000-a-week
Giroud revealed to BBC “I have been told that Jamie wants to join us and it’s very good news for us – I think we can be complimentary, He’s a fantastic player, so it’s good news for us.”
When asked if Vardy’s coming would spur a change in formation from Wenger’s usual 4-2-3-1 system, Giroud joked: “Obviously 4-4-2. As I said in the past I am happy with competition. We have always had fantastic strikers at Arsenal and I want the best for this club. Hopefully he is going to help us win this title.”
