Arsenal Legend Thiery Henry says he can’t understand why Jamie Vardy is delaying a decision on his future. It’s no longer news that the Gunners activated the striker’s £20m release clause and has offered him a four-year contract worth around £120,000 a week.
However, the forward appears to be torn in between staying with the Premier League Champions and moving to Arsenal. He has now decided to take more time to carefully weigh his options and it is believed the player will choose the club he will be playing after the European championship. But Henry is surprised the striker is contemplating staying at Leicester when Arsenal are ready to offer him the chance to play for a European elite.
“He’s 29. You have Arsenal coming for you and you’re telling them ‘I’m going to think about it’?”
“Well, all I can say is you [Vardy] have another proposition on the table or Arsenal doesn’t seem attractive to you anymore.
“He had an amazing season, don’t get me wrong. That will go down in the history of the game.
“But I have a question mark about whether he can play in the last third when another team is sitting deep.
“I think he’s been brilliant, I’m just asking myself questions along the way.
“All I can say is, if I was playing for Leicester and I’m 29 and I have Arsenal coming, I would have gone, but I’m not Jamie Vardy.”
Vardy scored 24 league goals for Leicester last season and is currently with Roy Hodgson squad for the Euro 2016 champtionship.
