According to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth, Chelsea are considering making a move for Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel this summer.
Chelsea face the possibility of losing Thibaut Courtois in the course of this summer’s transfer window, as he is yet to put pen to paper on a new contract, and will likely leave for free next summer.
Reports suggest that Chelsea are already eyeing potential replacements for the Belgian shot-stopper. Roma Keeper and Brazil international appears to be the topping the list but Chelsea will face stiff competition from Liverpool and Real Madrid.
Chelsea have now been linked with the Leicester goalkeeper following Denmark’s exit from the Russia 2018 World Cup. The Sky Sports reporter gave the indication that both Chelsea and Roma are considering a swoop for the Danish shot-stopper.
“An alternative to all of this is Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel,” Sheth told the Transfer Talk podcast.
“We are told both Chelsea and Roma are looking at him because they are preparing for life without their current number one.”
