Leicester looking to sign Danny Ward to replace Chelsea target Kasper Schmeichel

Ward's arrival, however, will likely only serve to increase speculation regarding Schmeichel's future at the King Power - particularly with reports on Thursday morning suggesting that Roma would be looking at the Danish global as a potential replacement for Liverpool-bound Alisson.

Danny was expected to be involved in tonight's friendly against Blackburn but instead he will join Leicester in a £10M deal.

Danny Ward who was previously tipped to get chance to be Reds no.1 before Alisson's deal agreed. He is reportedly in talks with Leicester City over a permanent move as Liverpool's goalkeeping reshuffle intensifies.

Leicester city looks to have identified Liverpool's rapidly moving situation at goal and as a result, has made a shocking swoop for Reds backup keeper.

His loan spell at Huddersfield Town saw him gain promotion to the Premier League in 2017, helping the Terriers to victory in penalty shoot-outs in both the semi-final and te play-off final.

Though the Englishman will have a hard task breaking into the Liverpool side come the start of the Premier League season with their front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino having performed so spectacularly last term.

Wales global Ward is expected to become one of the top keepers in the country but his progress has been blocked by Liverpool's purchase of Alisson Becker for a world record £67.5million.

Ward's form for Aberdeen - keeping 13 clean sheets in just 21 matches - led to a recall by Liverpool, and he made his debut for Klopp's side in a 2-1 win over Bournemouth in April 2016.
