Newcastle United will reportedly revive their interest in Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson this summer.
That’s according to the Northern Echo, who state the Magpies will make a new move for the 25-year-old.
But neither deal happened, and Henderson has remained in reserve at Manchester United. The England international is struggling for minutes, and will likely be desperate for a move away in the summer.
And with Newcastle heading into the second phase of their rebuild, it’s no surprise to see Eddie Howe’s side linked with the goalkeeper.
Dean Henderson the obvious ‘number one’ Newcastle target
It would appear that we are in the market for a new goalkeeper this summer. The Northern Echo names multiple targets who the Magpies are keeping an eye on.
Arsenal’s Bernd Leno and West Brom’s Sam Johnstone are named alongside Henderson. However, the Manchester United man is reportedly the number one target. Kepa Arrizabalaga from Chelsea has also been linked previously.
Given the other options, it’s obvious that Henderson should be the first choice target. He’s proven himself in the Premier League before, and has the potential to get even better.
At 25-years-old, he could be Newcastle’s number one for the next 10 years. In contrast, Leno and Johnstone won’t offer that kind of longevity.
The fact he’s English also helps, as he would help fill the homegrown quota for Howe’s Premier League squad.
Newcastle are building towards the future, which is why Henderson is such an exciting target. And it’s why he should be prioritised ahead of the likes of Leno and Johnstone.
