Kasper Schmeichel is gone and the gap to fill will be major. Not just filling the goalkeeper position with the best man possible, but also to see such a pivotal person move on makes it difficult to cope.

To get back to normal will take a while but the goalkeepers at present will they manage to be a cover for Kasper, difficult act to follow.

Napoli goalkeeper Alex Meret is the latest player to be linked with a move to Leicester. The 1.90m goalkeeper has a good reputation and at 25 also made his full international debut for Italy, to date, holder of two caps.

Last season he was held on the bench by David Ospina, but the 33 year former Arsenal stopper has made a move out to join Al-Nassr. The situation with Alex Meret looks a bit in the air, but still with little or no competition at Napoli he do have several options to look at. His contract runs out next summer so he needs to decide on his future very clearly.

But at this time with two goalkeepers at the club in the international frame at Wales and Denmark, are Leicester in need of a new first choice. The fact that Leicester also have Jakub Stolarczyk on their books makes it difficult to see a new big money signing to take on the gloves after Kasper Schmeichel.

Stolarczyk is 21 and spent last season on loan at Dunfirmline. Leicester are not likely to keep him at the club with interest from other clubs, one is said to be Fleetwood. So far Stolarczyk is at Leicester. To see an old man coming in to cover the third goalkeeper position might be an idea, but still Chituru Odunze and Arlo Doherty together with Brad Young are all young development players to call on if you need a back up for the two.

Daniel Iversen is still in demand and been linked with West Bromwich and Sunderland and with a new signed goalkeeper of course a possible option to let the Dane move on.

It’s a tall decision to make either to stay with the goalkeepers in place or make a move for one that could be the next big signing to replace Kasper Schmeichel.
