Arsenal are currently busy in the transfer market to add a world-class striker beside Olivier Giroud in a bid to win the English Premier League (EPL) title. Jamie Vardy, one of the targets whom the Gunners failed to acquire this season has revealed the reason behind choosing to reject a move to the Emirates Stadium this summer.
“It wasn’t that big [the decision] when I think about it. It was quite easy and this is where I want to be” Vardy said, as reported by Sky Sports.

The 29-year-old striker added that he still has “unfinished business” with his current club and EPL champions, Leicester City. Vardy was away on international duty with England at Euro 2016 when Arsenal attempted to lure the striker away triggering his release clause of $26.45 million.

Vardy revealed that he never held talks with Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger during his time with England at the Euros and believes that the decision was an easy one to make. He feels that Leicester City is moving forward as a football club and the players are a close-knit bunch.

The 2016 Barclays Premier League Player of the Season has also urged his teammate, Riyad Mahrez to follow his lead and stay at Leicester City for the 2016/17 season. Both Vardy and Mahrez struck a brilliant partnership together last season as Leicester City won their first EPL title.
