Manchester Evening News have claimed that Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and West Ham United have all expressed an interest to Manchester United over goalkeeper Dean Henderson ahead of the summer window.
Henderson, 23, has played second fiddle to David De Gea this season but despite the Spaniard’s form, De Gea has still featured in 23 of Manchester United’s 25 Premier League games. Henderson is ‘frustrated’ and has held talks with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
It is believed that he will seek a move away from Old Trafford this summer if De Gea remains first choice, something that is probably going to happen. It is claimed that Manchester United value Henderson in the region of £40million.
West Ham are looking for a goalkeeper with Lukasz Fabianski out of contract in the summer, while Spurs captain Hugo Lloris is seriously struggling for form. Henderson is being eyed, with Jose Mourinho having worked with Henderson briefly.
TBR’s view – Which club suits Henderson best?
Chelsea have spent the best part of £100million on goalkeepers – in the form of Edouard Mendy and Kepa Arrizabalaga. While both might not be the long-term solution, they are unlikely to spend big again in that department.
They might have to place their faith in both stoppers. West Ham need a goalkeeper and even if Fabianski remains, a younger stopper should be considered to rival the Pole and eventually overtake him. Henderson would surely start ahead of him.
But Tottenham might be ideal. If Lloris leaves – a strong possibility given Mauricio Pochettino is looking to replace Keylor Navas at PSG – then Henderson would be installed as number one ahead of Joe Hart. It makes sense.
