Tottenham Hotspur: Lilywhites eyeing Dean Henderson move

Tottenham Hotspur: Lilywhites eyeing Dean Henderson move -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to reliable Manchester Evening News correspondent Samuel Luckhurst, there has been a Tottenham Hotspur transfer update involving international goalkeeper Dean Henderson.

The Lowdown: Lloris contract saga…

Tottenham’s number one, despite being a mainstay under new boss Antonio Conte who apparently ‘loves’ the player, is set to leave on a free at the end of this season as things stand.

The Frenchman’s current deal expires in 2022, meaning foreign clubs can even approach Lloris over a pre-contract summer move in January in what could be a danger for Spurs.

As a result, Spurs and managing director Fabio Paratici have been linked to signing an eventual successor to the long-serving number one – including England goalkeeper Sam Johnstone.

However, as per Luckhurst, it appears the Lilywhites have their eye on another Three Lions ace in the form of Henderson amid his lack of game time at Manchester United.

The Latest: Luckhurst makes Henderson claim…

According to the Red Devils correspondent’s information, Tottenham and Conte are eyeing the 24-year-old with ‘a view to a summer transfer’ as Lloris’ deal winds down.

Henderson himself is apparently desperate to get regular playing time and is even ‘prepared to leave permanently’ – but his club and manager Ralf Rangnick have no desire to let him go on loan or indefinitely.

The Verdict: Ideal replacement?

Depending on United’s sale stance in 2022, Spurs could have identified an ideal replacement for Lloris if he does indeed leave in the summer.

Still young and able to add to Tottenham’s homegrown quota, Henderson has also enjoyed great campaigns in the Premier League – most notably whilst on loan at Sheffield United over 2019/2020.

Starting 36 top flight matches for The Blades that year, he earned the applause of their former boss Chris Wilder, who called him an ‘outstanding‘ member of their squad.

Meanwhile, Norway international Sander Berge held even loftier praise for Henderson – labelling the £120,000-per-week shot stopper ‘insane’ and ‘exceptional’.

A swoop for the United man isn’t without merit and it will be interesting to see how this one develops over the coming months.
