Chelsea are lining up a summer bid for Man United goalkeeper Dean Henderson, Football Insider understands.
This site has revealed that manager Frank Lampard is keen to sign a new number one this summer amid major doubts over Kepa Arrizabalaga.
A Chelsea source has told Football Insider that the club have set their sights on United’s loaned-out keeper Henderson.
The 23-year-old has spent the last two seasons on loan at Sheffield United and has progressed to the verge of an England call-up.
The Man United academy product has yet to make an appearance for his parent club despite accumulating extensive experience in all four professional divisions in England.
Chelsea believe Henderson could be attracted by a move to a Champions League calibre club where he would be the undisputed No1.
The source explained the Blues are willing to spend big money on a new keeper, although they would first need to secure a buyer for Arrizabalaga
