Jamie Vardy has had quite the season with Leicester City and England.
First, he defied all odds with his Leicester teammates and lifted the Premier League trophy, then he obtained England caps prior to Euro 2016, and scored his first international goal in style, with a back-heeled flick to help England beat Germany in Berlin.
His fairy tale season then reached a new level when he equalised against Wales, which then gave England the push to go on and beat their neighbours 2-1 in Lens.

Now, Arsenal are interested in signing the Leicester City striker, but would it really be a good move for Vardy?
Here are two reasons why Vardy should stay at the King Power Stadium rather than jump ship and head to the Emirates.

He Doesn't Suit 'The Arsenal Way'
No doubt about it, Arsenal play some beautiful football on their day. They move the ball around perfectly and wait for the perfect opening, but this does not always happen for Arsene Wenger's men.
Often Arsenal hold possession for so long, their fans boo and call for more shooting. This is a potential flaw in their system that would frustrate Vardy, who has been used to seeing a lot of balls go over the top and past the defenders for him to run on to.
Vardy scored the majority of his goals due to running the channels and getting in behind the backline, however, with the style of play Arsenal adopt, he would struggle to get into those positions and would need to redesign his own style.
It’s all well and good having talents like Vardy, but if Mesut Ozil and co. don’t feed him the ball, it's pointless having him. We’ve seen Oliver Giroud suffer from lack of service at Arsenal.
Leicester Could Have More Success
OK, Leicester City are unlikely to emulate last season’s success now that Pep Guardiola has joined Manchester City, Jose Mourinho is at Manchester United and Jurgen Klopp is re-building Liverpool, but then again, everyone said Leicester couldn’t win the Premier League in the first place and look what happened there.
Claudio Ranieri and his players have defied all odds by winning the Premier League, so what is to stop them from doing it all over again?
Vardy might be wise to see how the champions perform in their second season before looking elsewhere.
If Leicester can keep the likes of Vardy, N'Golo Kante and Riyad Mahrez, then what's to say they can't repeat their incredible achievement?
STAY OR GO?
Reports say that Vardy is likely to stay with Leicester City for the time being, but we have seen huge U-turns in the past that tell us to expect the unexpected in the Premier League.
Vardy would be wise to stay for at least another season with the Foxes, especially now he is playing in a team full of Premier League champions.
