Leicester City may well try to sell their England striker Jamie Vardy in the summer, with reports that the Leicester hierarchy are not happy with his form this season – he has only scored 10 goals in 36 total appearances.
He got a new contract at the Foxes last summer after scoring 24 goals in 36 Premier League games last season when Leicester were the Premier League Champions for the first time.
Ladbrokes have Newcastle as 9/2 favorites to sign the 30 year-old 16 times capped England International (6 goals).
Jamie Vardy – linked with Newcastle?
That deal will obviously depend on Newcastle getting promoted back to the Premier League this season but we would be very surprised if Jamie is one of the players Rafa Benitez wants to sign for Newcastle this summer.
Everton are second favorites at 5/1, but we don’t think Rafa will want to bring in a 30 year-old striker to Newcastle this summer.
Vardy had a £20M release clause in his contract before he signed a new deal, but he’s not worth £20M to Newcastle – not in our opinion anyway.
Maybe he will come a lot cheaper than that after a poor season?
We’re not really sure who the target strikers for Newcastle will be in the summer if we do get promoted.
Rafa may surprise us all with the two strikers he wants to bring into the club this summer.
What do you think?
