Former Leicester City midfielder turned pundit, Robbie Savage, insists that he “wouldn’t think twice” about joining Arsenal as Vardy mull over a move to North London
England international Jamie Vardy is still yet to decide whether to accept Arsenal’s £120,000-a-week offer or stay with the Premier League champions, who have also handed the 29-year-old England striker an improved deal.
Initially, the England striker was reported to be giving Arsenal a decision before boarding the plane to France with the English National team squad on Monday morning ahead of the European Championships.
However, the monday deadline passed without a single word from the striker, who netted 24 goals in the league last season, and at the moment is yet to address the media about where he will be playing his football in the 2016-2017 campaign.
Savage, spent five seasons as a Leicester City, believes Vardy should have no hesitations in joining Arsenal. Adding that a repeat of the club’s surprise Premier League title last season is highly unlikely in the future.
Savage wrote in his column in the Mirror, urged Vardy to leave the English Champions, where he is the point man in Leicester City’s attack in a team that suits his game..
Savage wrote “Jamie Vardy owes Leicester nothing.
“He has just fired them to the Premier League title and into the Champions League.
“To be honest, I don’t know what more he can realistically achieve at the King Power.
“Leicester aren’t going to win the title again.
“And although they can offer Vardy a taste of Champions League football next season, in all likelihood Arsenal can offer it every year.
“If I was 29 years old, and the Gunners were offering me £120,000 a week for the next three years , I wouldn’t think twice.
“I’d be off to north London.
“The signs are that Vardy is torn between joining Arsenal and staying at Leicester, but whatever he chooses to do, he must remember there is no loyalty in football anymore.”
