Kasper Schmeichel - The Footballing World

Arsenal target Schmeichel happy with Leicester

Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has dismissed rumours of a summer move to Arsenal, saying he is settled and happy at the King Power Stadium.

Recent reports have linked the Denmark international with a switch away from the Foxes this summer, with the Gunners said to be interested in securing his services, with manager Arsene Wenger weighing up all his options being reportedly keen on intensifying competition for a regular spot between the sticks at the Emirates Stadium.

With Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech being suggested as the French boss’s number one target, Schmeichel has also caught the his eye after impressing for Nigel Pearson’s side last season, establishing himself as a vital part in Leicester’s successful survival bid in the English Premier League during the closing stages of the campaign.

However, the 28-year-old Schmeichel, who is the son of former Manchester United shot-stopper Peter Schmeichel, who signed a four-year deal with Leicester last year, said he is fully committed to his current club and has no desire to move on.

After helping his country beat Montenegro 2-1 on Monday, the Manchester City academy product said: “A club transfer isn’t in my thinking.

“I am in a club where there are good coaches and owners, and it’s great.”
