The Leicester City striker is closing in on a move to Arsenal.
That clause was only available to Champions League clubs, and Arsene Wenger’s side have moved quickly to secure the striker, who was the second highest goalscorer in the Premier League this past season.
Some have suggested he could struggle in Arsenal’s team as their style of play does not suit him as Leicester City’s does.
And writing on Twitter, Collymore says Jack Wilshere and Mesut Ozil will be key to determining if Vardy is a hit at the Emirates.
Oz/JW. If they think/react quickly will find a guy who makes runs for fun.— Stan Collymore (@StanCollymore) June 4, 2016
Find him early, he'll be a Gooner goal pig. If not, don't buy.
It will certainly be interesting to see how Vardy will fit in at Arsenal next season given his style is in direct contrast to the one they employ.
That could be something that works in their favour though, with him potentially offering the Gunners that something different they are desperately craving.
