Premier League In the summer of 2016
Jamie Vardy was linked with a transfer to Arsenal just after helping Leicester City win the 2015/16 Premier League title, but it didn’t come to fruition.
Arsene Wenger, who was the Gunners’ coach at the time, has spoken about that approach and explained why Vardy never made the move.
“I offered him a lot of money, but Leicester had just won the championship” Wenger said during an appearance on BeIN Sports.
“Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha absolutely did not want to lose him.
“Leicester offered him a longer contract and approximately the same amount of money, if not more.”
