Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson emerges as a transfer target for Chelsea, according to a report.

Chelsea are reportedly weighing up a summer move for Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson.

Henderson has spent each of the last two seasons on loan at Sheffield United and is yet to make a single first-team appearance for his parent club, whom he has represented since 2011.

The 22-year-old has kept 10 clean sheets in 27 Premier League appearances this season, playing a key role in the Blades boasting the second-best defensive record in England's top flight behind Liverpool.

Henderson's future at Old Trafford is unclear, though, due to the presence of David de Gea.

Chelsea, on the other hand, have struggled in the goalkeeping department with Willy Caballero recently handed the gloves due to the struggles of Kepa Arrizabalaga.

According to The Mirror, the Blues are 'closely monitoring' Henderson, who is highly rated by the London club's head coach Frank Lampard.

The former England Under-21 international has a contract with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side until the end of the 2021-22 campaign.
