Arsenal are lining up Kasper Schmeichel as Petr Cech’s long-term successor, according to Exclusive Reports.
The Leicester City goalkeeper’s fine displays has seen his stock rise in spite of an otherwise disappointing campaign for the Premier League champions.
A number of abject displays has seen Cech’s position at the Emirates come under scrutiny, while back-up stopper David Ospina’s desire for regular first-team football means the Gunners are in the market for a new ‘keeper.
And, according to The Sun, Arsenal hope the prospect of European football can convince Schmeichel to move to north London.
Kasper Schemichel was named as the Danish Footballer of the Year for a second consecutive campaign, and is closing on 250 appearances for Leicester.
