Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has expressed his shock at England International Jamie Vardy’s hesitation over moving to the Emirates. Thierry Daniel Henry is a former French international footballer who played as an attacker. Titi, as fondly called played for Monaco, Juventus, Barcelona, New York Red Bulls and spent eight successful years at the Emirates where he is the club’s all-time record goal scorer.
The Gunners are believed to have triggered a release clause in Jamie Vardy’s contract, and are believed to have tabled an offer worth £120,000-a-week deal. Reports from the King Power stadium has it that the England striker has been offered an improved deal by Leicester City to stop him from moving out of the King Power stadium. Henry was left perplexed at the Leicester City striker’s representative comments to Arsenal that Jamie Vardy wants to focus on the European Championships and not discuss transfers.
Henry was quoted saying,
“He’s 29, right? You have Arsenal coming for you, and you’re telling them you’re going to think about it?”
“Listen. All I can say is if I was playing for Leicester and I had Arsenal coming, I would have gone.”
It will now be interesting to see what decision the Leicester striker will make after the European championships in France. A move to North London is a tempting one for him, and could be his last chance of moving to a big club.
Vardy scored 24 league goals last season, making him the second highest goal scorer in the English Premier League, alongside Argentine Sergio Agüero, and only one goal behind eventual winner of the Golden Boot Harry Kane.
