Tottenham are reportedly ready to join the race to sign Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson this summer.

Henderson has been in superb form on loan at Sheffield United this season and has been touted as replacing David de Gea long-term on his return to his parent club.

The 23-year-old has kept an impressive 10 clean sheets for the high-flying Blades this season, and was expected to be named in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the friendlies against Italy and Denmark before those games were postponed.

Henderson has also been linked with a move to Chelsea as well as another loan switch to Sheffield United, with doubts that the Blades would be able to afford a permanent deal for the stopper.

But now The Sun has claimed that Spurs ‘have joined the chase for £22million-rated’ Henderson, with Jose Mourinho hoping the young keeper keeper can ‘scrap’ with Hugo Lloris for the No 1 shirt at the north London club.

Former Red Devils’ boss Mourinho ‘helped launch’ Henderson’s career, according to The Sun, with the Portuguese coach sanctioning his initial loan to Sheffield United when they were playing in the Championship last term.

Despite interest from elsewhere, the report adds that if he was to leave United then Henderson’s ‘preferred destination would be Bramall Lane so he could be closer to his family’.

 

Meanwhile, Liverpool, Spurs and Manchester United strike target Victor Osimhen has denied reports that he has agreed a join Napoli.

The 21-year-old is a man in demand, according to Lille owner Gerard Lopez, after a stellar debut season in Ligue 1, notching 18 goals across all competitions.

Liverpool, Tottenham and Man Utd have all been linked with the Nigeria international with several outlets, including Brila.net, claiming that Osimhen has agreed a deal with Serie A club Napoli.

However, Osimhen has labelled the stories as “fake news”. Read more…
