Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has alternated between Kepa Arrizabalaga and Willy Caballero in goal this season, and the Blues boss might be keen to sign a new goalkeeper in the summer transfer window.

Chelsea have been linked with Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson who is currently on loan with Sheffield United. Henderson was spectacular as he helped the Blades to the Premier League from the Championship last season, and he has been stunning this season as Sheffield United are fighting for a place in Europe.

Henderson is only just 23 and has a bright future ahead of him, but Manchester United do not want to lose him despite having David De Gea in their ranks already.

Dean Henderson is yet to make a senior appearance for Manchester United and is nearing the end of his contract, with Chelsea keen to snap up the England international with £50m.

To rebuff Chelsea’s attempts, Manchester United have moved to offer the shotstopper a new £100,000-a-week deal to persuade him to reject offers from elsewhere and remain a Manchester United player.
