Leicester City are aware of the interest in their goalkeeper, and have slapped a £50 million price tag on him, reports the Sun.

Historical rivals Manchester United and Liverpool are reported to be interested in signing Leicester City’s Kasper Schmeichel, as both Jose Mourinho and Jurgen Klopp are keen on the the Danish shot-stopper, who has been impressive over the last two seasons.

In an attempt to fend off the interest around Schmeichel, the Foxes have set a hefty £50 million asking price on one of their finest players.

The Danish international is one of the highest paid players at Leicester City, and the goalkeeper had his contract extended for 5 years only last year.

Much to the relief of Leicester City fans, unlike Kante and Mahrez in the past, Schmeichel hasn’t pressurized to leave the King Power outfit. However, the prospect of playing for a team in the Champions League could still lure him away from his current club.

Notably, Schmeichel’s teammate Mahrez has already expressed his desire to leave Leicester, following their disappointing campaign which followed their league title victory.

Arsenal are reported to be interested in signing the want-away Algerian, who won the Premier League player of the year in 2015/16 season.
