A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from The Sun this week suggesting that Spurs have Dean Henderson on their radar.
It appears that Jose Mourinho may be facing a fight to hold onto Hugo Lloris. The Sun reports that Mauricio Pochettino is keen to take the Frenchman to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.
And it is suggested that Tottenham have two Premier League goalkeepers on their wishlist in case they lose their captain. The Sun claims that they are interested in Henderson, as well as West Bromwich Albion stopper Sam Johnstone.
The Sun notes that Henderson is growing frustrated over his lack of game-time this season. The 23-year-old has made three Premier League appearances.
He will surely not come cheap. Henderson looks to have an incredibly bright future ahead. And as noted by the Manchester Evening News, he is on a contract worth in excess of £100,000-a-week.
The links with Henderson have prompted plenty of reaction on social media. Admittedly, some clearly have no interest in seeing Lloris leave. They feel that the 34-year-old still has a lot to contribute.
But many think that Henderson would be a very good signing if they do lose Lloris. The youngster was outstanding during his loan spell at Sheffield United last season.
And it does appear that he has the talent to be one of the Premier League’s best over the coming years. So some would certainly like him signed.
Here is how some of the Spurs fans have reacted to the reports…
Hugo has been amazing since season resumed after lockdown,but his getting on.
Dean Henderson would be awesome.

He’s going nowhere, but Dean Henderson would make me happy as a replacement.

I like Henderson, showed his quality at Sheffield.
I don’t think you need to sign a big name as a gk, just a competent one that dominates his area.

Lloris has been fantastic since the restart — but would be sad if he left but I’d take Johnstone or Henderson anyday
