It could all be a storm in a teacup and Arsenal might still get their man of course, as no official agreement or rejection has been forthcoming from the Leicester City and England star Jamie Vardy. But after the star striker jetted off with Roy Hodgson and the England squad to take part in the Euro 2016 tournament there were already growing fears that he may have decided to snub Arsenal and stay with the current Premier League champions.
So the news reported by Metro that Vardy has now changed the header of his Twitter page top show the Foxes celebrating with the Premier League trophy has just added a lot of fuel to the fire of speculation. It certainly does not offer any encouragement to Arsenal fans about him completing the move to north London this summer.
Social media users have certainly taken this move by Vardy as a sign that he will reject the transfer to Arsenal, although at least he has not actually said anything. There were reports that his current club has made a counter offer to persuade the forward to stick with them and his team mates have apparently been on to him as well.
However, he could also just be trying to focus on his international duties before making a final decision on his club football. But it does look like Arsenal will have to wait and without any sort of assurance that the wait will end up with the right result.
Should Arsene Wenger already be looking at alternative options?
