Chelsea identified £50m-rated PL goalkeeper as Kepa Arrizabalaga’s replacement

Premier League giants Chelsea are reportedly prepared to make a big-money offer for Man United stopper Dean Henderson.

Having impressed during a second impressive loan spell at Sheffield United, the 23-year-old keeper is wary of becoming deputy to David de Gea when he makes a return to the 20-times English champions.

With over two years left on his current deal, the Red Devils remain in a relatively strong position regarding the 23-year-old’s future.

However, according to The Sun, the Blues are ready to tempt United into selling the highly-regarded Englishman with an offer in the region of £50m.

Despite Spain international keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga having kept clean sheets on his last two games for the Blues, it remains unclear whether the Spaniard will stay at Stamford Bridge for a long-term as Lampard not fully convinced by him.

Chelsea may be prepared to part ways with the former Athletic Bilbao keeper for a cut-price fee if they are able to bring in 23-year-old Henderson as his long-term replacement and player himself could be open to leaving the Old Trafford as Solskjaer has recently mentioned that David De Gea is the best goalkeeper in the world and despite rumours linking Spaniard with a move to La Liga it is unlikely to see him departing from Old Trafford.
