Greece international Odysseas Vlachodimos might not tick all boxes for the regular Leicester fan, but he would certainly be an ideal man as a future Kasper Schmeichel replacement.
He is today linked with a move to Leicester as the ultimate man to take over and his presence and stats shows us all why. He has a long life of football at a major club in Europe, he is a proven international and at an age (28) that would be seen as ideal.
Daniel Iversen or Danny Ward could be good replacements but they do not look ideal. A goalkeeper at Leicester in present time and at Premier League level needs a certain status and background that would see him suited.
Vlachodimos has been under pressure at Benfica and some believe, but highly rated as one of the best goalkeepers outside the major leagues in Europe.
He is born and bread in Germany and started his football career with Stuttgart. He then made a move to Panathinaikos in 2016 and later to Benfica in 2018. He has been their first choice since arriving and so far played 117 league games in total.
Reports believe Vlachodimos is ready for his next step in football and among the stories today that really makes it possible to see him as the alternative closest to happening with the news about Kasper Schmeichel and his move to Nice.
After a long summer with a number of rumours linking players of all sorts surprisingly Kasper Schmeichel could be the player that moves out first with a new goalkeeper arrival being the first transfer in.
Still early on and so far no first hand rumour talk to consider, but the fact that it comes from a Portuguese source makes it one to follow up. Looking at him on video you will of course get a good grip on his performance level.
