Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing a new goal keeper in the summer transfer window and have identified Manchester United's shot-stopper as an option

Tottenham are reportedly keen on signing Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson when the transfer window opens as they look for a Hugo Lloris successor.

Lloris has been in disappointing form for Tottenham in recent times and the 36-year-old Frenchman is not at the level he once was. His slew of error-prone performances have cost Tottenham valuable points.

According to ESPN, Spurs will look to replace Lloris over the summer and they have identified Manchester United’s Dean Henderson as a long-term option.

Henderson, 26,  has shown flashes of his undoubted quality on loan at Nottingham Forest but was even more impressive during his loan spell at Sheffield United two years ago.

Henderson has certainly proved he can be a capable Premier League goalkeeper and his shot-stopping ability is at a high level. 

Why Tottenham would be a good move for Henderson

He has lacked stability over the past few years and a move to Spurs would provide balance and potentially a pathway to the England team. 

The Manchester United goalkeeper who is currently on loan at Nottingham Forest is unlikely to be content with a place on the bench at Old Trafford. 

A player of his qualities will want to continue testing his qualities at the highest level. 

Meanwhile, Manchester United have been linked with the Tottenham striker Harry Kane as manager, Erik ten Hag continues his search for a top-level striker. The ESPN report goes on to say that a swap deal involving Dean Henderson could be proposed. 

However, it is unlikely to be met with positivity by Tottenham chairman, Daniel Levy.

Kane will have just one year left on his Tottenham contract at the start of next season and it will be interesting to see how this develops moving into the summer.
