Kasper Schmeichel surprise summer target for Barcelona


Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, 29, has emerged as a surprise transfer target for La Liga power house Barcelona.

The Catalan giants have reportedly been keeping tabs on the Leicester stopper all season and have now decided to ramp up interest. Barcelona are plotting a £15m bid for the player in the upcoming transfer window.

In form Schmeichel has been a rock at the heart of tittle favorites Leicester City’s defence all season. It is believed the player is happy at Leicester, however Barcelona are in need of a new keeper after a disappointing season and they see Schmeichel as the ideal replacement.

Barcelona will not make a move for the player until the end of the season, respecting Leicesters wishes of not distracting any of their players in the tittle run in.

Schmeichel is not the only keeper that Barcelona have been tracking in the Premier League. They have also made initial inquiries over Southampton‘s Fraser Foster, but it is believed Schmeichel is their number one choice.
