Chelsea are yet to make their move for Leicester City and Denmark shot-stopper Kasper Schmeichel this summer, according to Foxes manager Claude Puel.

This is as per the Sun, who are stating that the west London side have been linked with a move for the player, with the Metro also stating that Schmeichel is a target for the Blues and that Leicester are most likely going to want £30M or more for the Dane.

Since moving to the Foxes from Leeds in the summer of 2011, Danish international Schmeichel has been a mainstay in the club’s side.

The 31-year-old has been fantastic for the Foxes ever since their promotion in the 2013/14 season, with the shot-stopper playing a key part in his side escaping relegation the following season.

Schmeichel was also pivotal in Leicester’s shock title win in the 2015/16 season, with the Dane managing to keep a total of 15 clean sheets in 38 games to help the club win their first ever Premier League title.

Chelsea signing Schmeichel would be a wise move from the Blues, as the ace already has Premier League experience and wouldn’t cost an absolute fortune.
