Chelsea and Roma target Leicester's Kasper Schmeichel

Chelsea and Roma have shown interest in signing Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, according to Skysports.

Both clubs may well be in the market for new first choice goalkeepers – Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois and Roma’s Alisson having been linked with likely summer moves.

The 31-year-old is a well-established Premier League performer and played a big role in Leicester’s title victory in 2015-16.

Schmeichel showed his quality again on Sunday night at the World Cup in Russia, regardless of Denmark’s eventual penalty shoot-out loss to Croatia.

The stopper saved a Luka Modric penalty with just minutes left in extra-time and kept out two more penalties in the later shoot-out, but Croatia still triumphed 3-2.
