Former Leicester City favourite Kasper Schmeichel has emerged as a possible transfer option for Wolves amid reports that Arsenal are ‘plotting a shock move’ for Dan Bentley.

The Sun’s transfer specialist Alan Nixon claims that the Gunners want 30-year-old Bentley as third choice cover for his former Brentford team-mate David Raya, who is currently understudy to Mikel Arteta’s number one, Aaron Ramsdale.

Bentley has been unable to make the first team at Wanderers due to the form of Jose Sa ahead of him and the report claims that Wolves’ coach Gary O’Neil is “in the market for a new reserve with Kasper Schmeichel, 37, an option.”

It continues, that Bentley “may fancy the Arsenal move” even if it is to be third choice at a time when Ramsdale is “priced at £50million” and therefore unlikely to find any “takers” for a move himself to trigger a shuffle of keepers.

Foxes hero Schmeichel signed for Anderlecht last summer where he made 32 appearances - but he left after his one-year deal expired and once again finds himself looking for a new club.

The Dane has been back in the spotlight this summer representing Denmark in the Euros showing that he’s very much still got it, and is now available as a free transfer, two years after leaving the Foxes and England for Nice.
