Claude Puel insists Leicester City have not received any offers for goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.
Chelsea are considering a move for the Denmark international, who helped the Foxes to a ninth-place finish in the Premier League last season.
Puel is determined to hold on to the 31-year-old as he plans for his second season in charge at the King Power Stadium.
“I am not troubled about this,” said Puel, speaking after his side’s 4-1 win over Notts County in pre-season. “Of course Kasper is a very important player for us. He had a very strong World Cup. We need Kasper, with his character, his performance and his consistency.”
When asked if Leicester had received any offers for Schmeichel, Puel said: “No. There is no problem with this. There is a lot of speculation at this moment, it is normal.”
