Is Wilshere the key to Vardy saying YES to Arsenal transfer?

A lot of this theory may hinge on how much game time the Arsenal and England international midfield star Jack Wilshere gets at the upcoming Euro 2016 tournament, and by extension whether the England boss Roy Hodgson decides to play our Jack and our transfer target Jamie Vardy at the same time.

But we cannot possibly know how much of what goes on behind the scenes in training has an effect and so I will assume that the two players get to know each other’s games pretty well this summer.

All this stems from the growing questions about how well the Leicester City striker will get on with the Gunners and how well Arsenal would get on with Vardy leading the line and that is where young Wilshere could come in. I don’t know how much you recall about our injury plagued star and his international performances in recent years, but being an England fan and someone who spends way too much time watching, thinking about and writing about football, my memories are fresh.

In the qualifying for this tournament, Wilshere was pretty much a fixture in the centre of midfield and as well as that he was often the best player on the pitch. One of his major attributes was his creativity, even though he played in the deep lying midfield role.

It was more like a Pirlo style position and he emulated the Italian maestro by producing some exquisite and pinpoint long defence splitting passes, along with his more usual bursts and 1-2s and that would suit the abilities of Vardy down to the ground.

Can you see where I am going with this Gooners? Could Euro 2016 and Wilshere’s providing for Vardy make the Leicester City man see that he could thrive at Arsenal and convince him to sign on the dotted line. There is always Ozil as well of course…

  1. Vardy and wilshire are bound to speak about the club u can just imagine them two getting on well aswell.i believe it’s already a done deal tho as Leicester bid for deeney , with the abuse vardys wife was getting I can’t imagine he’d wanna announce it just before he leaves for France so his wife can stay at home and possibly receive threats and abuse in general it wouldn’t be ideal in general and it would be a big distraction for him at the euros. Footballers are only human remember not every decision time based will solely revolve around football .

  2. “Yup mate 100k a week
    even if like me you miss
    50 games a season.
    15 mill guaranteed whether
    you play any good or not.

  3. I really don’t hope Vardy signs for us. Sure, he has done well this season, but I think there is great risk he may only be a “one season wonder”. He has a great work rate, but apart from that, I don’t think he is anything special. I hope the money will be spent more wisely.

  4. there’s nothing u can do to convince a player who isn’t really into moving…wilshere will not try and persuade him to join if his opinion isn’t needed…sure, d occasional ‘sweet talk’ but he will expect vardy to make up his mind…I believe we shld continue pursuing him so if there’s an off chance he wants to join after Euros, and we’ve not found a better alternative, we get him…Wenger shld go to south america and look for pple tevez,aguero etc…he says they produce d best both he ends up buying the ineffective ones(Wellington, Campbell)…nobody shld sai they’re not there, cuz ath Madrid will sell all their best strikers and buy south Americans(either in Europe or s/america) and they’ll be as good as d previous 1s…can’t he get callieri or gabigol…I for one would love it if we could put in a cheeky bid for angel correa(the next aguero)

  5. I believe the Troy bid could well mean that Arsenal have him in the bag . However, the fact that Troy is one of those players you can play off of sort of says it’s not so cut and dry. Troy could be an upgrade on the Asian dude Vardy plays next to. Wilshere will try and convince him on the move, but he shouldn’t need convincing if you ask me. What about all the tott players telling him that you only move to big clubs for more money and better chances at winning stuff, then they’ll say there is no point in moving if you get that at Lei. It would be a mistake to listen to those over Jack. Next season I expect the norm to return, I expect Kante and Marhez to be gone, and Vardy would be sick if he didn’t bite our hand off.

  6. Pffff, Vardy signed already, the comments Wenger made about him starting for England or not at the Euro’s is quite telling, I doubt Wenger would make such comments if things were still in the balance.
