Chelsea have reportedly identified Dean Henderson as a potential candidate to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga in goal ahead of next season.

Henderson is currently in his second season on loan with Sheffield United from Manchester United and he has impressed with 14 clean sheets in the Premier League.

The 23-year-old is regarded by the Red Devils as a long-term replacement for David de Gea, but The Express claims that he would rather prefer to play regularly in the coming years.

Frank Lampard's side are said to be keeping a close eye on the player's developments and it is reported that they could explore the possibility of a loan or permanent deal this summer.

Arrizabalaga has been a regular in goal since the season resumption, but there continue to remain question marks over his shot-stopping. He currently has the lowest save percentage in the Premier League this term.

The Spain international has been linked with a possible return to La Liga on loan this summer. Valencia and former club Athletic Bilbao are said to be keen on landing his signature.
