Tottenham Hotspur is reportedly interested in signing Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson. According to sources at ESPN, the north London club would pounce if United were willing to part ways with Henderson. Spurs will certainly be looking for a fresh keeper during the summer transfer window.
The north London club’s top two shot-stoppers on the team, Hugo Lloris and Fraser Forster, are currently 36 and 35 years of age, respectively. Both keepers will also enter their final year of contract next season.
Keeper wants no. 1 role
United must make a decision on Henderson’s future this summer as well. David de Gea is currently the undisputed No. 1 keeper for the club. However, the Spain international’s contract ends in June. Yet, the Red Devils have not yet come to an agreement for an extension.
Manager Erik ten Hag wants to keep de Gea at the club, but he also reportedly wants to offer the player a reduced salary. Although an agreement appears likely, nothing has materialized just yet.
Henderson is currently on loan at Nottingham Forest. While the newly-promoted side is fighting to avoid relegation, the keeper has performed well. At 26, Henderson will also most likely want to tie down a regular starting role with a club. If United are willing to part ways with the keeper, there will be plenty of potential suitors.
United monitoring Kane, Spurs hunting Henderson
Assuming Spurs make a formal offer for Henderson, United could then target Harry Kane. ESPN is reporting that the Red Devils are clearly interested in signing the superstar striker this summer. The two Premier League clubs could hash out a simultaneous deal to make both parties happy. Spurs would supposedly listen to offers in the $120 million range for Kane.
Nevertheless, Tottenham’s willingness to negotiate with a Premier League rival remains to be seen. First and foremost, the north London club wants to re-sign Kane to a new contract. If they don’t succeed at this, they would surely rather sell their star to a foreign team. Bayern Munich have already spoken publicly about Kane in recent months.
