Leicester City beat Liverpool for defender amid massive Chelsea transfer request


Chelsea eye Schmeichel

Chelsea has “expressed an interest” in Kasper Schmeichel.

The Leicester City number 1 has previously been linked with a summer move to Manchester United.

And transfer expert Ian McGarry claims Chelsea boss Frank Lampard wants Schmeichel to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga as No.1 at Stamford Bridge.

“Chelsea have also expressed interest in Kasper Schmeichel,” he said on the transfer window podcast.

“Frank Lampard is concerned about Kepa Arrizabalaga’s form, and although there is very little interest from other clubs in buying the player, it seems likely he will have to stay. ”


Tsimikas voulait

Leicester City and Liverpool have both reportedly inquired about the possibility of signing Olympiacos defender Kostas Tsimikas.

The Foxes and the Premier League champions have made contact with the Greece international, according to the Daily Mail.

Leicester and Liverpool have previously been linked with the 24-year-old left-back as they look to strengthen their teams over the summer.

The Mail says Tsimikas has been on City’s ‘list’ for more than a year amid interest in Ben Chilwell of Chelsea and Manchester City.


Todibo link

Leicester City have reportedly joined the race to sign Barcelona defender Jean-Clair Todibo.

The center-back spent the second half of the 2019-20 season on loan at Schalke.

The German club are apparently not taking an option to make the move permanent this summer.

Barcelona are said to be looking to sell the France Under-20 international and Everton have become a possible buyer.

Coutinho last

Philippe Coutinho is linked with a return to the Premier League this summer.

His £ 145million move to Barcelona did not go as planned and he spent the 2019-20 season on loan at Bayern Munich.

The German club are apparently not taking the opportunity to sign the playmaker for good, prompting speculation about his future.

While Barcelona are reportedly ready to sell the Brazilian star, Leicester City are among the club to have been credited with interest, along with Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.
