According to The Guardian, Arsenal want to sign England international striker Vardy from Premier League rivals Leicester in the summer transfer window and have triggered his release clause of £20 million.
Savage has urged Vardy to make the move and has commented on his blog for the Mirror that there is no loyalty in football any more, suggesting that the striker should not feel bad about leaving.
“Jamie Vardy owes Leicester nothing. To be honest, I don’t know what more he can realistically achieve at the King Power. Leicester aren’t going to win the title again,” Savage wrote in the Mirror.
“The signs are that Vardy is torn between joining Arsenal and staying at Leicester, but whatever he chooses to do, he must remember there is no loyalty in football any more.”
Leicester took the gamble on Vardy by signing him from Fleetwood Town, but he has more than repaid the faith shown in him by netting a remarkable 24 Premier League goals last term.
Vardy may be taking his time in deciding as his loyalty could be questioned, but Savage questions the decision to request a release clause in his contract if he has no real desire to move on.
“Why insert that clause if you are not prepared to jump ship when a big club activates it? And why £20m? With a £5.1billion TV deal set to kick in, there was always going to be someone nibbling at the bait," wrote Savage.
Vardy is on international duty with England at the moment and will be an important player for the Three Lions at the Euro 2016 finals in France.
