Chelsea are reportedly interested in goalkeeper Dean Henderson – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are keen for the club to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
The 22-year-old has been shining in the Premier League out on loan at Sheffield United this season from Manchester United.
According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United have a dilemma over the shot-stopper’s future when he returns to Old Trafford in the summer as his current path is blocked by David De Gea.
It is claimed that Chelsea, Tottenham, Paris Saint-Germain and Sheffield United are all circling to see if he becomes available in the summer.
The report adds that the Blues want competition in net next season for Kepa Arrizabalaga, who was recently dropped from the starting XI for the first time in the league by manager Frank Lampard.
Henderson has forced his way into the England squad following his eye-catching form in the top-flight with Sheffield United, with some believing he should start in the European Championships despite the fact he’s yet to earn his first senior cap.
He’s still on the books with Manchester United, but has made a name for himself out on loan at Bramall Lane during the last 18 months, which included a promotion last year.
The Englishman is an imposing goalkeeper in his penalty area and has great reflexes, as well as being comfortable on the ball.
A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media are convinced that targetHenderson could be brilliant if given the chance for them.
It’s unclear on if the Blues could try negotiate a deal with rivals Manchester United for him and whether or not he will be available, but he’s certainly an exciting target and there is a buzz around the fanbase after completing a summer deal for playmaker Hakim Ziyech from Ajax.
Here are some Chelsea fans on the Henderson speculation:
Top signing, but will United sell him to us?
