With Chelsea having secured deals for Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech ahead of next season, thoughts are now turning to other areas of the pitch where the Blues can strengthen.
Number one goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has had a difficult campaign and one supporter on Twitter has suggested that the club should do all they can to sign Manchester United shot-stopper Dean Henderson as a replacement:
Chelsea should go all-in for Dean Henderson. Sell number one shirt to him, make United an offer they can't refuse. I know it won't be easy but we can try. He is arguably the best shot-stopper in this league. Sorry but Kepa isn't at Dean's shot-stopping level. I envy United.

The response to the suggestion was pretty mixed with many thinking that United are highly unlikely to sell him:
Pipe dream sadly.

We cannot spend heavily twice on one position in just a two years time , we got to back Kepa mate .

I doubt United will be willing to sell him to a rival. Not gonna happen

Facts… Totally agree… He's getting to world class level soon…

They won’t sell , the only hope we probably have is if he even wants to move and tries to force the issue which I pretty much doubt .

United are never selling anyone to us.

I second this, even tho I rate and like Kepa.

As much as I'd love to get Dean, it's just not gonna happen. I'd rather we focus on signing Onana. He'll be cheap and easy to get. Or maybe keep Kepa and sign Pope to compete with him.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already suggested that he sees Henderson as United and England’s future number one so the Red Devils are clearly determined to keep the 23-year-old.
However, with David De Gea remaining first choice, and Henderson having been loaned out to Sheffield United for a second successive season, there are question marks over whether the keeper will be happy to continue playing second fiddle.
His current deal at United does expire in 2022 so while he is unlikely to be offloaded at the moment, there is a small possibility he could be sold when he enters the last year of his contract next summer.
