Everton are set to make a summer move for Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel and would be willing to pay 15 million to bring the Premier League winner to Goodison Park, according to The Mirror.

The Toffees parted company with long-term custodian Tim Howard in the summer, with Ronald Koeman bringing compatriot Maarten Stekelenburg to Merseyside as a replacement.

The Dutch stopper has shared the goalkeeping responsibilities with Joel Robles this term, but a lot of talk in the media has stipulated that Everton are likely to look for a long-term option between the sticks in the summer.

Schmeichel has proven himself as one of the Premier Leagues best in his position and was a crucial player in Leicester being crowned English champions last season.

However, with the Foxes struggling to reach last terms heights in 2016-17 and now embroiled in a relegation scrap, there is talk that some of Claudio Ranieris main men could look to leave the King Power Stadium.

The report suggests that Schmeichel, who signed a new Leicester contract relatively recently, would command a transfer fee in the region of 15 million if he was to join Everton.
