After the departure of Walter Benitez to PSV, OGC Nice is looking for a prestigious replacement for the Argentinian. The Aiglons almost recruited the Swiss Yann Sommer before the volte-face of the doorman of Monchengladbach. The new Nice target is now called Kasper Schmeichel.
It is often said that to have a good team, you need to have a great scorer and a great goalkeeper. OGC Nice understood the message. Already possessing a very interesting line of attack with Amine Gouiri, Kasper Dolberg and Andy Delort, the Niçois are eagerly looking for a quality goalkeeper. It must be said that they lost the very efficient and discreet Walter Benitez who had been defending the Aiglons for four seasons. To take the place of the Argentinian who left for PSV, you need something heavy and experienced. It almost was Yann Sommer but the Swiss ultimately refused to leave the Bundesliga at the last moment.
Schmeichel is seriously considering the Nice proposal
To bounce back from this cruel failure, OGC Nice has more than one trick up its sleeve. As revealed the team, Nice is now interested in Danish goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel. It would be a great move with this solid goalkeeper whose talent is praised throughout Europe. The sports daily specifies that the transfer of Schmeichel to the Côte d’Azur is widely possible.

Indeed, Schmeichel is soon 36 years old and has only one year of contract with Leicester. Porter for the Foxes for 11 years and a true legend of the club with which he won the Premier League in 2016, he would like to leave his club through the front door and with class. He carefully studies the Nice offer, which could constitute the last experience of his career. Both clubs have already started transfer talks. If that were the case, Nice would bring back a real star of the post and a locker room manager capable of guiding the young shoots of Nice, including the Polish goalkeeper Marcin Bulka recently recruited at PSG.
