According to reports on Tuesday. The Denmark international has agreed a move to French club Nice to seek a new challenge after 11 years at the club.
The report revealed that The Foxes themselves are reluctant to let the 35-year-old leave the team until a replacement can be found before the start of the season.
According to Portuguese outlet Records, Vladivostok has been target by Leicester City. Who will bring him to the King Power Stadium instead, while Benfica is ready to leave. The team if the price is not less than 12.5 million pounds.
Vladivostok, who joined Benfica from Panathinaikos for just £2.1 million in 2018. He has made 169 appearances for the club over four years at the club.
So, although Nice are a club in transition this summer – not just in the goalkeeping department, PSG-bound head coach Christophe Galtier had to be replaced with Lucien Favre – they could be an interesting option for Schmeichel to consider.
However, for now he may have to wait at the King Power Stadium. With Schmeichel entering the new season as number one, it will still be a bit of a problem for Leicester.
But only time will tell how long they will be able to hold him.
