According to recent reports, Nice and goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel have reached an agreement.
With 479 appearances over 11 seasons, the 35-year-old has contributed to the club’s Premier League and FA Cup victories.
Schmeichel still has a year left on his contract with Leicester, and he and the team have not yet come to an agreement on a new one.
According to rumors, Schmeichel has now agreed to join Nice this summer. Nice plays in Ligue 1.
Schmeichel’s exit must first be approved by Leicester, who must then recruit a replacement. Schmeichel’s transfer is reportedly reliant on Leicester first finding a replacement.
Leno is reportedly one of the names being taken into consideration. Leicester’s interest is disappointing for Fulham because Leno has been linked to them for several weeks.
After Arsenal lowered their asking price to £ 8 million, the Whites were rumored to be optimistic about acquiring the German goalie.
Leno, who has lost the No. 1 position in goal at the Emirates to Aaron Ramsdale, was previously wanted by Arsenal for £10 million.
However, the rumored interest from Leicester could now put a kink in the plans. The Foxes do have some alternate targets in mind. Alban Lafont, a Nantes goalkeeper, is also under consideration, the report continues.
Robert Sanchez, a goalkeeper for Brighton, has also been mentioned as a possible replacement for the 35-year-old.
As there is only one year left on his present deal, Sportshebron knows that Leicester City has allowed Schmeichel to decide his own future, and the club is okay with it.
Since playing on loan at Scottish club Falkirk in 2007, Schmeichel’s move to Nice would mark the first time he has played outside England.
Over the course of his lengthy career in England, the goalie has played for teams including Manchester City, Darlington, Bury, Cardiff City, Coventry City, Notts County, Leeds United, and Leicester.
