Chelsea 'plotting shock move for Man Utd outcast Dean Henderson'

Chelsea are plotting a move for Manchester United outcast Dean Henderson, according to reports.

Chelsea are currently languishing in 10th place in the Premier League, some 11 points adrift of the Champions League spots.

The Blues have endured a dismal season under Graham Potter, who has been unable to turn the tides at Stamford Bridge, leaving the Champions League as their only viable chance at silverware.

But following a poor domestic campaign, the club will already have half an eye on the summer transfer window.


Chelsea haven't shied away from investing in the team since Todd Boehly's arrival in the summer, spending over £480 million on new recruits.


However, a position they are yet to strengthen is their goalkeeping department, with the club allegedly plotting a summer swoop to sign Henderson from Premier League rivals Manchester United.

Henderson to Chelsea?


A fresh report from Football Insider has revealed that Henderson will seek to leave Old Trafford permanently in the summer, having previously refused to play second fiddle to David de Gea at the club.

Currently on loan at Nottingham Forest, the 26-year-old is keen for first team football in order to work his way back into the England set-up.

Whilst the report states that both Chelsea and Tottenham have expressed an interest.

Kepa Arrizabalaga has taken Edouard Mendy's place in the Chelsea starting 11 this season.


The Senegalese shot-stopper has since been rumoured with a move away from Stamford Bridge, leaving the club to assess their goalkeeping options.

Forest are also eager for Henderson to stay at the City Ground, but understand it depends on their Premier League survival.

The addition of Keylor Navas has once again seen him drop down the pecking order, after Steve Cooper was forced into the transfer market following an injury to Henderson in January.
