Chelsea are reportedly planning to make a £55 million offer for Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson this summer.

The 23-year-old's loan deal at Sheffield United will expire this month with the Englishman expected back at Old Trafford afterward.

He has however been touted as a quality replacement for David De Gea after showing superb displays during his time at the Bramall Lane.

His impressive performances have attracted interests from top managers but Frank Lampard seems more desperate to secure his services after losing confidence in Kepa Arrizabalaga.

But the Blues will have to offer him so much more if the player must force his way out of his present club.

The 23-year-old is willing to remain at the club as long as they make him number one if he stays next term as reported by Talk Sport.

Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is yet to decide who will be his first-choice goalkeeper between De Gea and Henderson next campaign.

And the England star will not sign a new deal with United unless the clause is addressed properly.

Talk Sport quoting The Mirror claim Chelsea are most likely to seal the deal for Henderson if he decides to quit Man United. And they will be willing to give him as high as £170,000-a-week.

Lampard's major target this summer would be to sign a goalkeeper following the many blunders committed by the world-record shot-stopper.

The Spaniard was dropped for Willy Caballero in their last EPL encounter of the season and they kept a clean sheet in that fixture.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Spanish goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has not been impressive this season for Premier League side Chelsea and the former Athletic Bilbao stopper could be on his way out of the Blues.

But Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has made it clear that he has not made a final decision on the future of the Spaniard and he may decide after the FA Cup final against Arsenal.

The FA Cup final between Chelsea and Arsenal will be a tough one for both sides as they will want to finish the season with a title.
