Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers says that Premier League top goalscorer Jamie Vardy would never have turned down Arsenal out of fear of not playing there, when the London club made an offer in 2016 in the wake of Leicester City’s title-winning season.  

The two sides face one another at the King Power Stadium on Saturday with third-place Leicester leading Arsenal by six points and pressure mounting on Unai Emery after four straight draws in all competitions.

Vardy has ten goals already this season and Rodgers reflected on the player’s decision not to join Arsenal three years ago, instead signing a long-term deal with Leicester that has two more years to run after this season.
