Kasper Schmeichel’s Denmark performance on Sunday has alerted Liverpool fans who are looking for a replacement goalkeeper in this summer’s transfer window.
Schmeichel of course is a name that isn’t exactly big with Reds supporters given his father’s links with arch rivals Manchester United in 1990s, but it seems many are willing to consign that to the past and make a move for the Leicester City shot-stopper.
The 31-year-old shot-stopper was in incredible form for the Danes yesterday despite their World Cup exit to Croatia, saving a penalty from Luka Modric in extra-time before going on to save two efforts in the subsequent penalty shoot-out.
With question marks surrounding current Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius, Schmeichel could be the perfect replacement this summer, possessing both the Premier League experience and having the right kind of personality to make the position his own at Anfield.
Should the Reds make their move for the player?
These fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Liverpool could go a lot worse than signing Kasper Schmeichel #LFC

Schmeichel's arrogance is exactly the kind of presence that I want between the sticks for Liverpool. #LFC

I'd happily have Schmeichel at the Reds. Especially after tonight. #LFC

Liverpool still haven't realized they can't win the premier league with Karius and Mignolet. Schmeichel would be a great buy. #LFC next buy should be a goalkeeper not other departments. Klopp should know this by now.
