Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Dean Henderson is being eyed for a summer transfer by Tottenham, according to The Sun. The Reds hope to sign the 25-year-old as a replacement for Hugo Lloris who has made several high-profile errors this season.

Henderson is on loan at Forest from Manchester United. He’s made 20 appearances for the Reds and helped himself to six clean sheets before picking up a thigh injury during a 2-0 win over Leicester City.

Now, Forest will need to move quickly to sign Henderson. It has been claimed that the goalkeeper is the club’s number one target provided they complete their goal of remaining in the Prmeier League.

Henderson looks to be on borrowed time with Manchester United. He was very public in slamming the club for the way in which they handled things with regard to his game time last season.

Henderson is working his way back to full fitness at present. He needs to displace Keylor Navas if he’s to get back into the team when he is fit and that in itself won’t be easy to do.

Tottenham are currently playing Fraser Forster as their goalkeeper. He’s not seen as a long-term option, and Henderson is a player who could have a long career at Spurs.

This would be a blow for Forest. Of course, if the team are relegated this season their hopes of signing Henderson will evaporate anyway.

Forest will be in the market for a goalkeeper themselves. Both Henderson and Navas will return to their respective clubs and Steve Cooper will need a new one.

The Reds might need to move quickly to sign Henderson. He would be an amazing signing for the club but with Tottenham in the race for the top four, they might have Champions League football to offer him.
