Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham Hotspur are all interested in signing Dean Henderson this summer, according to the Daily Mail.
Henderson has greatly impressed in 2019/20 during his second successive loan spell at Sheffield United. The goalkeeper has helped the Blades to the second best defensive record in the Premier League behind leaders Liverpool.
Only Reds stopper Alisson, Burnley’s Nick Pope and Kasper Schmeichel of Leicester City can match Henderson’s record of nine clean sheets so far in the top flight.
This form has led many to claim the 22-year-old should be England number one for Euro 2020. This is despite the fact he is yet to earn his first senior cap for his country.
Henderson’s parent club, Manchester United, view him as their first choice ‘keeper in the long term. However, David de Gea has only recently signed a new contract to keep him at Old Trafford until 2023.
Henderson is not prepared to stay at Man United next term if he is not number one. Chris Wilder has already said that talks have begun about bringing him back for a third loan spell. Yet Wilder says there is no chance of signing Henderson permanently.
Why Chelsea, PSG and Spurs are interested in Henderson
Henderson is widely regarded as one of the most promising English stoppers. Which is what makes him such an exciting prospect to many top sides.
The Blues have an issue in goal currently, with manager Frank Lampard having failed to be convinced by Kepa Arrizabalaga. Kepa has been dropped for their past two matches.
PSG, meanwhile, are hoping to change the dynamic of their squad by bringing in younger players. They feel Henderson fits the bill in that regard.
Finally, Spurs are on the hunt for someone to provide backup and competition for Hugo Lloris. Lloris is now 33-years-old and has been increasingly criticised for his performances.
