Chelsea eyeing Man Utd stopper Dean Henderson as Kepa replacement

Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson is reportedly the subject of interest from a number of sides, including Premier League rivals Chelsea and French giants Paris Saint-Germain.

Henderson is currently on loan at Sheffield United and has made the step up to top flight football with ease.

The 22-year-old signed a new deal at Old Trafford in the summer before heading back on loan to Sheffield United where he has kept nine clean sheets, tied for the most in the league with Burnley’s Nick Pope and Liverpool’s Alisson Becker.

As a result of his impressive performances for the Blades, ESPN are reporting that Chelsea and PSG are interested in signing him.

The Blues could be in the market for a new goalkeeper in the summer, with current stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga looking shaky this season.

The £71.6m signing from Athletic Bilbao was recently dropped by manager Frank Lampard in favour of the 38-year-old Willy Caballero, who also failed to convince in Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Leicester.

Speaking about his decision to drop Kepa, Lampard insisted he did not take it lightly.

“It’s a decision that I make and I think with goalkeepers it’s a decision you don’t take lightly because of what it means,” he said.

“I trust in Willy he trains brilliantly, he’s a great professional. I trust them both but it’s the decision for today.”

Lampard has previously given his backing to the Spaniard, saying: “I am not affected by criticism from the outside as much. I am aware of it, not affected by it.

“It is what I want for the team and I think with Kepa he knows, he’ll be honest that there have been some mistakes that have cost us goals.

“It is the nature of it, so that needs to improve.”
