Arsene Wenger is set to miss out on Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy despite activating the player’s release clause.
Wenger had been hoping to sign the Foxes striker this summer and activated the £20m release clause needed to sign the striker but Leicester City fought hard and did everything possible within their means to convince the player to stay and it now appears the England international is leaning towards staying at the King Power Stadium.
Leicester City vice chairman, Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha has now confirmed the player could reject a move to the Emirates to stay with the Premier League Champions.
‘You will see the news very soon,’ Srivaddhanaprabha told the Mail, as quoted by the Metro. ‘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.’
Vardy was one of the best player’s in the league last season and would definitely improve our team but it seems his current club is winning the race to keep him.
