Leicester City star: The reason why Jamie Vardy is leaving to join Arsenal


Leicester City striker Shinji Okazaki says the reason why Jamie Vardy could decide to leave the Foxes is to lead Arsenal to another Premier League title.

The Gunners haven't won the domestic crown since 2004 and faced heavy criticism after finishing second behind Claudio Ranieri's men.

They made an official offer to sign the Englishman who is yet to take a decision having left the country for the Euro 2016 Championship.

"I think he has the potential to adapt to any style of soccer," Okazaki told the Japan Times.

"At Leicester, we just happened to play the way we did and he fit fine.

"But even in a team that plays possession soccer, he has that sudden burst of speed and there are a lot of players at Arsenal who will notice that right away and play to that strength of his, like the way they did with Danny Welbeck.

"He’s not someone who only tries to get behind the defence, though. He picks his spots.

"Someone like me, I have to really get set up and then go but he can quicken instantly, go from zero to full speed. He can adjust to any style.

"It is difficult to say what I would do if I were in his position.

"Arsenal have not won the league for a long time and that is maybe a dream Vardy has.

"He has won the league with Leicester and if he led Arsenal to the title rather than try and help Leicester defend it, then his stock would rise even further."
