When asked if they wanted to try to strike a deal for Olsen, Ancelotti said, “Yes, I think we are happy to have him here

“He is a seasoned goalkeeper so I think we will speak to him and his agent to find a solution for him to be here permanently. It may be for January or June

“He did well the games he played. He was comfortable, he was calm, he was calm I think he supports Jordan (Pickford) well too”

The 6ft 5in Custodian has been capped 42 times by his country and played in all five Swedish games at the 2018 World Cup, including the 2-0 quarter-finals against England when Pickford scored the opposing goal
