Some Chelsea fans have identified the on-loan Sheffield United goalkeeper Dean Henderson as their preferred replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Kepa was recently dropped by the Blues and has been linked with a return to his former club Athletic Bilbao in the summer transfer window.


The names of several potential successors have already been mentioned in the press, including Burnley's Nick Pope and Crystal Palace's Vicente Guaita.

But if their side are indeed looking to the Premier League for Kepa's heir, the following Chelsea supporters feel the man currently starring for Sheffield United should be at the top of the list.









Henderson has spent the last two seasons on loan to Sheffield United from his first club, Manchester United.

But with David de Gea currently blocking his path at Old Trafford, the England international is likely to seek another move this summer.
