Wenger’s Vardy masterplan
Arsenal former boss revealed in the summer of 2016, Arsenal reported bid for Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy, but the England International rejected the offer.
The deal would have been great for the Gunners, however, there were concerns Vardy would struggle at the Emirates because of their diverse style of play, which is possession based. Jamie excelled in the foxes dugout because they relied more on counter attacks.
Arsene Wenger revealed during his punditry duty for beIN Sports, Vardy was being considered after the player netted against Liverpool on Saturday afternoon
“We had more of the ball, yes,” Wenger added. “I think around the box the timing of his runs and he finds the space to go. When you see the big strikers, they are on the move when others stand still in the box and he has that.
“They read earlier than others, they anticipate better, they understand quicker than other people.”
