Arsenal legend Paul Merson says he was left "shocked and flabbergasted" after the Gunners made a move to sign Jamie Vardy.
The Leicester City man is expected to take a decision over his future at the end of the Euro 2016 Championship.
But Merson believes the Englishman will not fit in Arsene Wenger's squad as the Foxes play a different style of football.
"I'm shocked. I'm absolutely flabbergasted with it," the 48-year-old told talkSPORT.
"Arsenal don't get the ball forward quick enough for Jamie Vardy. No disrespect, but he plays at Leicester where everyone goes and has a go at them.
"Twenty of his goals must have been over the top, balls that he is running on to, beat the goalie and great finish. You play for Arsenal, you kick off and the other team sit ten men behind the ball
"Leicester suits Jamie Vardy, in my opinion. He is perfect for them. They play his way, they get the ball forward very quickly and he will keep on causing havoc. If he goes to Arsenal, I just don't see it.
"That is no disrespect to him. I'm not saying he won't get goals but I don't think he will get enough opportunities [at Arsenal]. They take too long to get the ball forward.
"I'm not having a go at Vardy. For what he does, he is different class. But you watch him for England the other night [against Portugal] and if you have got ten players behind the ball… I mean Carvalho looked like Beckenbauer."
