Tottenham Hotspur were previously linked with the player added to Gareth Southgate’s squad this week.
Hugo Lloris’s dislocated elbow has exposed Tottenham Hotspur’s lack of depth in the goalkeeping position.
But given the Frenchman’s form prior to – and whilst – suffering the injury, might it be more than just Lloris competition Tottenham should be seeking in 2020?
Though he has served Spurs well in his seven years in north London, the Frenchman’s off-colour displays are nothing new.
But who could feasibly succeed him at White Hart Lane? How about a player to whom Tottenham, according to ESPN, were alerted earlier this year?
Back then, Dean Henderson was playing Championship football for Sheffield United – albeit on loan from their Manchester namesakes.
But after a solid start to his second, again temporary, spell at Bramall Lane – one high-profile error against Liverpool aside – Henderson is the newest recipient of an England call-up.
The 22-year-old recently signed a new long-term contract with Manchester United – keeping him at Old Trafford until at least 2022.
But he is not the only Red Devils goalkeeper to have done so, and displacing David de Gea will perhaps prove more difficult than ousting Hugo Lloris.
According to The Sun, Manchester United will demand £20 million to part with Henderson next summer – a figure that should not be out of Spurs’ reach.
And a move to the bright lights of London, to play for a club of Tottenham’s stature may hold greater appeal than a return to Sheffield United or seat on the Man United bench.
