Confirmed – Arsenal complete preliminary talks for League One goalkeeper

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

Arsenal will have a tough challenge on their hands in their bid to sign Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson, according to the Mirror journalist Adrian Kajumba.

The Sun reported at the start of the week that the Gunners had joined the long list of clubs looking to take the England Under 21 international off the market, and it seems the list continues to expand.

As well as several Premier League clubs and Championship sides, Portuguese champions Benfica, Serie A side Udinese and Greek club Olympiakos are also among the teams to have indicated interest in the 20-year-old.

Henderson is currently on a loan spell with League One leaders Shrewsbury Town where he has appeared in ten league games so far, conceding just six times and keeping five clean sheets.

His contract at United expires in the summer, and it seems he will have a long list of clubs to consider for his next destination if he opts to leave Old Trafford in search of regular first-team football.
