Arsenal have enquired about Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel as Arsene Wenger seeks to strengthen our goalkeeper department in a move which could spell danger for Wojciech Szczesny, Danish reporter Michael Quareshi reports.
Arsenal have enquired about Kasper Schmeichel but no talks until Leicester have finished season. Also on list in other bigger clubs

The goalkeeper position seems like a priority for us this summer considering the number of potential options we’re pursuing, as The Telegraphs suggests, and it seems that Schmeichel is prominent among Wenger’s thoughts.
David Ospina has taken the reins as the club’s No.1 since January and while he’s performed admirably on occasions, both he and Szczesny have shown that they’re prone to errors at any point in the game.

With the boss confirming that he’s only looking to add “top, world-class players” (via Sky Sports) to our squad this summer, whether or not Schmeichel is in that bracket of player is questionable.
The Danish international is 28-years-old and according to the report, there are other clubs interested in the shot-stopper.
Few can deny Schmeichel’s importance to Leicester City’s relegation fight, but we should only be looking to add bona fide world-class players into our squad.
His superiority over Ospina and Szczesny is questionable and that should be enough to prevent Wenger from bringing him in…
