Chelsea and Liverpool have reportedly shown their desires to lure Leicester City goaltender Schmeichel to their respective clubs this summer.
According to reports, the son of former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter is beginning to gain attention from top Premier League clubs due to his heroic displays for his European country at the ongoing Mundial.
Though Denmark failed to progress to the next round of the after losing to Croatia on Sunday, Schmeichel’s performance was lively as he saved Luka Modric’s penalty in regular time.
He was also on ground to save two spot kicks during shootouts but that wasn’t enough to see them through to the quarter-final of the competition as Christian Erikson missed from the spot.
Despite his world cup ouster, Liverpool and Chelsea have been convinced that he would be a good addition to their goalkeeping department.
With Thibaut Courtois’ future yet to be sorted out, the Blues are hoping they could convince Leicester City to let go of the wonderful netminder.
Liverpool want to bring an experience goalie to man the post ahead of next season and the 31-year-old netminder, who has played 295 matches for the Foxes, seems to be the man they are tipping for the job.
Just like Schmeichel, both clubs are also believed to be in contention for Roma and Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker.
Roma are reportedly demanding too much for the player’s signature and both clubs are ready to pull out of the race for his signature this summer.
