Wenger says Arsenal offered Vardy a lucrative contract

The transfer never took place.

Former Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger said Leicester forward Jamie Vardy could have joined the Gunners. The footballer was offered a lot of money. In the end, however, the striker remained at Leicester.

“It was right after Leicester won the championship. The owner of the team didn’t want Vardy to leave. The Arsenal bosses have made a great offer to the player – a long-term contract, a big salary. I think he would join Arsenal. The ability to find free zones is its main quality. He thinks ahead, reads the game perfectly “, – said Wenger.
