Chelsea FC are among the clubs keen on a move to sign Kasper Schmeichel from Leicester City this summer, according to reports in the British media.

Sky Sports is claiming that both the Blues and Italian side AS Roma are keen on moves to try and sign the 31-year-old this summer to bolster their squads.

Chelsea FC are being linked with a number of goalkeepers this summer as the uncertainty about Thibaut Courtois’ long-term future at Stamford Bridge continues to rumble on.

Courtois’ contract is set to expire at the end of next season and the Blues are unlikely to want to let the deal run down and risk losing him on a free transfer next summer.

The same story says that both AS Roma shot-stopper Alisson and Chelsea FC goalkeeper Courtois could be on their way out of their respective clubs this summer.

Chelsea FC are one of the only major clubs in Europe not to have made any new signings so far this summer.

The Blues will be keen to bolster their squad in the remaining weeks of the summer transfer window as they look to assemble a squad at least capable of breaking back into the top four next season, after they finished in fifth place last term and missed out on Champions League qualification.
