As per a report from ESPN, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain are both keen on the signature of on-loan Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson.
22-year-old shot-stopper Henderson has spent the last couple of seasons with Sheffield United.
After impressing during a stint in League One with Shrewsbury, Henderson subsequently made the step up to the Championship last season, where he went on to play an integral role in Sheffield United’s return to the Premier League.
Across 45 league appearances, the English talent racked up 21 clean sheets, cementing himself as a firm fan favourite at Bramall Lane.

And Henderson’s stellar form has since carried into his first experience of top-flight football.
Amid Sheffield United’s charge to 5th in the Premier League table, the former Carlisle United youth has conceded just 24 goals across 26 appearances.
This is a record bettered only by top of the table Liverpool.
The end of the campaign, though, will see Henderson’s future up in the air once more, after his loan deal at Bramall Lane expires.
This is set to pose a dilemma for Manchester United, with David de Gea expected to continue to act as no.1 at Old Trafford next season, and Argentinian international Sergio Romero a highly-reliable backup.
And, as per the aforementioned report from ESPN, a number of clubs appear keen to take advantage of this situation, by testing the resolve of the Red Devils.
Chief among these outfits, meanwhile, are Chelsea and PSG.
It is claimed that both European heavyweights are eyeing Henderson’s signature ahead of the summer transfer window.
The interest of Frank Lampard’s Chelsea comes amid Kepa Arrizabalaga’s struggles of late, while PSG are seemingly eyeing further competition for no.1 Keylor Navas.
