Schmeichel Interests Chelsea  (Sky Sports)

Kasper SchmeichelChelsea and Roma are interested in signing Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, according to Sky sources.

Both clubs may be in the market for new first choice goalkeepers - Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois and Roma's Alisson having been linked with possible summer moves.

The 31-year-old Schmeichel is a well-established Premier League performer and played a big part in Leicester's title win in 2015-16.

He showed his quality again on Sunday night at the World Cup, despite Denmark's eventual penalty shoot-out defeat to Croatia.

Schmeichel saved a Luka Modric penalty with just minutes left in extra-time and kept out two more spot kicks in the subsequent shoot-out, but Croatia still prevailed 3-2.
