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.
