Reports in the UK press say that Jamie Vardy has told his England team-mates that he is '80 per cent' sure he is going to reject a move to Arsenal.

The London Evening Standard say that sources have told them that the Leicester striker has confided in his international colleagues that he is likely to turn down the Gunners.

Arsenal have met the release clause and a verbal agreement on a contract has been struck but the player is reluctant to leave the champions.

While a final decision isn't expected as long as England are involved in the European Championships, it is looking increasingly likely he will stay at the Foxes, and sign an improved deal worth £100,000 a week.

Wenger may now turn his attentions to Alvaro Morata, according to the report, and if Arsenal do get a new forward it may mean Theo Walcott being sold to West Ham for £25m.
