Wenger talks Arsenal target Jamie Vardy


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has spoken about transfer target and current Leicester City centre forward Jamie Vardy.

The 29-year-old has been heavily linked with a summer move to the north London side, with the Gunners believed to have submitted a bid of £21m for the Leicester star.

Vardy is currently on international duty with England as they prepare for the first game of their European Championship campaign, which begins against Russia on Saturday afternoon.

However, speaking to Bein Sports, Wenger stated that he does not believe that the potential new Arsenal no.9 will be a starter for the Three Lions, due to his lack of experience at the top level.


“I don’t think that Vardy will be a starter. He has earned his place in the squad.

“I don’t say this because he does not have the quality, but because he doesn’t have enough experience at that level to say the whole tournament will depend on Vardy. Will he be there? Certainly.”

The Frenchman refused to comment on speculation linking the England star with a move to north London, with it believed that Vardy is currently going through the decision making process regarding a potential move.

It is expected that a decision will be made in the coming days as to whether the centre forward leaves the Premier League champions to join Arsenal.
