Like many, Piers Morgan showed his appreciation for Jamie Vardy after the Leicester City striker broke Ruud van Nistelrooy’s consecutive goalscoring record against Manchester United this weekend.
The celebrity Arsenal fan went one step further than most however, and demanded that Arsene Wenger signed the in-form forward in January.
What a moment, what a natural-born striker. Sign him, Wenger. #vardy

Leicester have recently slapped a £30m price tag on the Premier League’s top scorer (via The Telegraph), in an attempt to ward off interest from any other clubs.
While Vardy’s form has been unquestionably superb this season, how Morgan thinks splashing that kind of cash to bring him to the Emirates makes sense is a mystery.
He’d be 29-years-old by the time we even got the chance to sign him, if Leicester were even willing to sell mid season when they’re performing so well. There’s also no reason to think his form will last, as while he’s been excellent this season, his form over the years certainly hasn’t been consistent.
Morgan loves to jump from one in-form player to the next, insisting that Wenger and Arsenal sign whoever is scoring that week. He would also be the first to jump on Wenger’s back when Vardy flopped at the Emirates though, and really just likes to complain whenever he gets the chance.

You can’t take Vardy’s achievements away from him, and Leicester are certainly lucky to have a player in such fine form leading the line for them. We’ve seen so many times what buying form gives you, and more often than not it results in failure.
