Thierry Henry has expressed his surprise at Jamie Vardy's delayed transfer to Arsenal.
The Arsenal legend was working as a pundit for BBC Radio Five Live during France's Euro 2016 opener against Romania last night.
During the build-up to the game in Paris, conversation turned to Arsenal and their attempts to land Vardy from Leicester - and Henry is less than impressed with what's gone on.
The Gunners activated a clause in Vardy's contract which stipulates he could join a Champions League team if a bid of £20 million was forthcoming, however the striker is yet to pull the trigger on the switch.
Leicester have reportedly offered the former Fleetwood Town man a pay-rise worth £100,000-per-week in order to keep him at the King Power stadium - and now it seems as though Vardy will delay making a decision until England's involvement at Euro 2016 is at an end.
That has seemingly angered Henry, who is Arsenal's all-time leading goalscorer. The Frenchman believes Vardy should have jumped at the chance to leave the reigning Premier League champions in order to head to north London.
“He’s 29, right? You have Arsenal coming for you, and you’re telling them you’re going to think about it?” he said.
“Either he has another proposition on the table, or Arsenal doesn’t seem attractive to you anymore. Listen. All I can say is if I was playing for Leicester and I had Arsenal coming, I would have gone.”
Henry also insisted that Vardy wouldn't necessarily be a good fit for Arsenal, despite his 24 Premier League goals last season.
“He had an amazing season, don’t get me wrong, it will go down in history. But I have my question marks about can he play in the last third when teams are waiting for you. I’m just asking some questions along the way.”
