After conceding four goals in a 5-4 win over relegation candidates Norwich City, Liverpool FC are on a search for a good goalkeeper to replace Simon Mignolet, and Leicester City’s Kasper Schmeichel seems to be their answer.
The Leicester City man was been a part of an amazing run by the Foxes this season, as they soared to the top of the Premier League, and are very much in contention for the title, along with traditional English giants Arsenal FC and Manchester City.
Schmeichel has kept seven clean sheets so far this season in the Premier League — the same number as Mignolet, and Jurgen Klopp seems to believe that the Dane might turn out to be better than the Belgian custodian.
However, an enquiry by the Reds resulted in Leicester City telling them that they do not want to sell Schmeichel in the current transfer window, as they want to push on for the Premier League title, according to the Daily Mirror.
Manchester United might be trying their hand too
The Merseysiders might have joined the race to land Schmeichel, but their bitter rivals Manchester United are said to have already been in the race to sign the son of their own Danish star (Peter Schmeichel) from Leicester City.
There is an aura of uncertainty about David de Gea’s presence at the Old Trafford, and rumours have it that Real Madrid could swoop in for the Spaniard, before their transfer ban starts in the summer. The Red Devils seem to think that Schmeichel might be a good replacement for De Gea, according to The Sun.
