Chelsea identify Manchester United goalkeeeper Dean Henderson as an ideal replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga, according to a report.

Chelsea have reportedly set their sights on Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson as an ideal replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Henderson has enjoyed a stellar season on loan at Sheffield United and recently helped the Blades secure a 3-0 victory over the Champions League-chasing Blues at Bramall Lane, recording his 13th clean sheet of the league season in the process.

The Englishman is primed to battle David de Gea for the number one spot at Old Trafford ahead of his anticipated return to United this summer, but Henderson's future with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side remains shrouded in uncertainty prior to next season.

According to The Express, Frank Lampard is hoping to bring Henderson to Stamford Bridge either on loan or on a permanent basis after losing faith in Kepa.

However, the report claims that United would be unlikely to sanction a sale to a Premier League rival, with the Red Devils and Chelsea currently battling it out for a top-four finish during the closing stages of the 2019-20 campaign.

Henderson still has two years left to run on his current contract at Old Trafford.
