Tottenham have joined a host of European giants in the race to sign Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson in the summer transfer window, according to the Daily Mail.
The report claims that Spurs are interested in the 22-year-old shot-stopper, who is currently on a season-long loan deal with Sheffield United, along with French champions PSG, Chelsea and the Blades, who’re an outside bet to secure his services permanently.
Henderson has been in outstanding form for Chris Wilder’s men since their promotion to the Premier League and has kept the joint-most clean sheets in the league this term (9).
And Spurs are likely to be in need of at least one goalkeeper in the summer – with Michel Vorm’s short-term deal set to expire, whilst Paulo Gazzaniga struggled to fill the void left by Hugo Lloris during the Frenchman’s four-month lay-off with a dislocated elbow.
However, Lloris – whose position as Tottenham’s number one came under scrutiny earlier in the campaign after a number of mistakes – firmly remains as Jose Mourinho’s first-choice keeper and has impressed on his return to the side – saving a penalty against Manchester City a fortnight ago.
It would be an excellent coup if Mourinho can pull it off, but Henderson is only likely to move if he is guaranteed first-team football – something that the Portuguese cannot assure.
