Tottenham could stun Nottingham Forest and move for Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson in the summer. Spurs are now extremely keen on the 26-year-old and fancy signing him even if the Reds remain in the Premier League.
This latest snippet of news comes from ESPN. It doesn’t spell positivity from a Forest perspective with the club almost certainly in the mix to keep Henderson if they remain in the Premier League.
The Reds haven’t agreed on a fee with United should they avoid relegation. United could be prepared to sell the player, however, with Henderson craving regular first-team football.
The man with one England cap to his name has been in fine form for the Reds. Injury struck in January, however, forcing the club to sign Keylor Navas on loan from PSG.
Henderson has struggled to get himself ahead of David de Gea in the Manchester United team. As a result, he is keen to play regular football and likely move away from Old Trafford in the summer.
Forest will need to stay in the Premier League before they can dream of landing Henderson on a permanent basis. The Reds are winless in six games and desperately need a win from somewhere.
Tottenham could stun Forest and sign Henderson
Hugo Lloris could be about to be replaced at Tottenham. Fraser Forster doesn’t appear a long-term replacement and a young goalkeeper will be targeted in the summer.
Henderson makes logical sense and it will surely be a move that he’d jump at. Tottenham will likely be in Europe next season and could yet qualify for the Champions League.
The United stopper won’t cost the earth and ultimately he would fancy his chances of regular action. Moving to Spurs would also allow him the chance to really stake his claim for a place in the England setup.
Forest will monitor this one with intrigue. If they stay in the Premier League, they will desperately need to sign a goalkeeper and the supporters will hope a deal can be struck for Henderson.
