#4 Kasper Schmeichel

Leicester City v Watford - Premier League
Kasper Schmeichel was one of the major reasons for Leicester's success in the 2015/16 season

Son of former Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel, Kasper came into spotlight with his stellar performances during Leicester's title-winning campaign in the 2015/16 season.

The 30-year-old Danish international has proven many times that he can compete at the highest level. As with the case of Jack Butland, Kasper Schmeichel also appears to be too good for his current team, that is happy with mid-table finishes.

The 185cm tall shot-stopper is also very experienced in the Premier League, as he has made 124 appearances in the British top flight, whilst adding 31 appearances for his country. According to Squawka, he has also made 3.2 saves per game this season.

Schmeichel has wonderful reflexes and he is very good at saving long shots. He often comes off his line to make clearances and is impressive in that sweeper role. Additionally, his penalty saves in the Champions League last-16 win over Sevilla last season, ensured the Foxes progressed to the quarter finals.

Schmeichel's performances last season proved that he can handle the pressure of Champions League football with ease. The Dane's current market value is estimated at around €10 million.
