I respect Vardy’s decision to stay at Leicester City – Wenger

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has said that he respects Jamie Vardy’s decision to snub a move to the Emirates and remain at Leicester City.
Vardy has turned down a £20million move to Arsenal and signed a new deal worth £100,000-a-week with the Premier League champions.

Wenger, in an interview with beIN Sports, said: “I think Leicester have made a statement and Vardy will stay. We were on the case and interested, but not more than that.

“He has decided to stay at Leicester and good luck to him.

“He came late to the game and in fairness Leicester bought him from Fleetwood and he has been successful. He is 29 and he has chosen to stay at Leicester. You have to respect that.”

The Arsenal boss, who has already signed Granit Xhaka from Borussia Mochengladbach, also believes N’Golo Kante will leave Leicester.

“It is very difficult to talk about that at the moment,” he said.
“Kante is on the list of many clubs. It is an area where we have many players.

“We will see what happens in the next two or three weeks. It looks like Leicester have bought a player from Nice [Nampalys Mendy] with similar qualities to Kante, so whether they envisage to lose him or not I don’t know.

“If you ask 100 people in the street if they want Kante to play [for France] you will get 100 saying yes. He has done the job in one or two games and I am not surprised.

“I said two months ago this boy will play the whole European Championship. We know him well from Leicester now and I am not surprised that he is starting. He has been one of the revelations of the French team.”
