Chelsea had earlier made inquiries about the availability of Dean Henderson, ahead of the summer transfer window but the player’s owners, Man United blocked the chances of his move to the Stamford Bridge.

The West London outfit seem to be running out of patience with goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga and has been in the news for a new hunt, with Man United stopper, Dean Henderson highly considered.

Dean Henderson has been on loan with Sheffield United. His performance has impressed a number of clubs and pundits, especially after the restart of the Premier League. No wonder he is attracting interest from Chelsea.

However, it is now reported that Dean Henderson is considering favouring a move to Chelsea but that is highly dependent on his talks with his real owners within the weeks.

It is reported that Dean Henderson seeks assurance and guarantee from manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he would be given the first-choice role ahead of David De Gea or will not sign a new deal with the club.

From every sporting calculation, it means, he would be readily available for the Blues as it is very unlikely that he would be given that trust ahead of the Spanish goalkeeper despite his blunders in recent games.
