Jamie Vardy’s hesitation over whether he joins Arsenal or not could cost the Gunners an extra £10m or more.

The striker‘s new release clause at Leicester City is said to have climbed to £30m since he’s been away for the Euros. How? Well, according to Di Marzio, the 29-year-old had a clause in his existing contract with the Foxes that said that Champions League qualifying clubs could have him for £20m before the 3rd of June 2016.

Arsenal did indeed trigger this clause on the 3rd of June. However, it was Vardy who has been dithering over making a final decision, which is why it’s now risen to £30m.

Nice one, Varz.

Apparently, the price could climb even higher, depending on how he does at the Euros (up to £57m, if reports are to be believed), which so far is pretty good, and I don’t see us going that high. Saying that, if Vardy decides he does want to come to us after all, we have a little leverage.
