Arsene Wenger does not think Jamie Vardy will start for England in their Euro 2016 opener against Russia on Saturday as Arsenal continue to be linked with a move for the striker
According to various reports it is understood that Jamie Vardy held talks with Arsenal after the Gunners triggered a £20m release clause in his Leicester contract.
Arsene Wenger also refused to comment about a move for the 29-year-old when he spoke to beIN Sports, preferring to focus on Vardy’s possibilities with England over the next few weeks.
“I don’t think that Vardy will be a starter,” Wenger said. “He has earned his place in the squad.
“I don’t say this because he does not have the quality, but because he doesn’t have enough experience at that level to say the whole tournament will depend on Vardy. Will he be there? Certainly.
