Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy is the subject of interest from Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur – who can all sign him for £20m due to a clause in his contract, according to the Daily Mail.
Vardy enjoyed a stunning season at the Foxes, netting 24 times – goals which helped Claudio Ranieri’s side to the Premier League title. The 29-year-old is also set to play for England at this summer’s European Championships in France, to cap off an unbelievable year.
But, with such success, comes interest from elsewhere, and Vardy is being pursued by Leicester’s Premier League rivals, in an attempt to prize him away from the East Midlands.
The new contract that he signed in February, reportedly has a buy-out option for any club playing in the Champions League next season, both domestically, and on the continent.
As things stand, Vardy is set to represent Leicester in their maiden voyage into Europe’s top-tier competition, however, the clause has alerted their fellow divisional top-four sides.
Vardy has also drawn up interest from Chelsea, Manchester United and West Ham United – with the latter having reportedly matched a previous release clause, as the Hammers hope the lure of London and their new Olympic Stadium home can convince the international forward to make an unlikely move.
Despite the player having attracted the eyes of suitors, Vardy has insisted he remains happy at the King Power Stadium, as he prepares to marry long-term fiancee, Rebekah Nicholson, on Wednesday.
