Report: Barcelona considering £15m move for Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel

Kasper Schmeichel for Leicester City

The Dane has been sensational for the Premier League leaders this season.

Barcelona are reportedly lining up a £15m summer swoop for Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, according to The Sun

The Catalan giants are set to lose Marc-Andre ter Stegen at the end of the season, The Sun reports, so have earmarked the Foxes stopper as a potential replacement for the German.

The 29-year-old has enjoyed an exceptional season at the King Power Stadium, playing every single league game to help Claudio Ranieri's men sit five points clear at the top of the Premier League table with just four games to go.

And with the Dane reaching an age when goalkeeper's start to reach their peak, it appears that Luis Enrique is keen to bring the former Notts County man to the Nou Camp to battle with Claudio Bravo for the number one spot for the La Liga side.

With Leicester on the verge of achieving something incredible by winning the league title, Schmeichel may feel that it provides the perfect closure on this chapter of his career, and that a move to Barcelona is too difficult to turn down especially as it may be the only chance he gets to complete such a switch.
