Fulham will go head-to-head with former manager Scott Parker this summer as they look to secure the services of Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson, according to the Sun.

Bournemouth are keen to sign the England international as they prepare for the Premier League, despite the excellent form of Irish goalkeeper Mark Travers this season. Fulham hold a long-standing interest in Henderson, who only made three first-team appearances at Old Trafford this term despite briefly displacing David de Gea. The 25 year-old is thought to be high on Marco Silva’s list of goalkeeping targets as he seeks a summer upgrade on current number one Marek Rodak.

The Sun claims that United are poised to pay half of Henderson’s £120,000-a-week wages to make a loan move more appealing for potential suitors. He is desperate for first team football having dropped out of Gareth Southgate’s England squad after David de Gea was reinstated as the Red Devils number one by Ralf Rangnick. The Whitehaven-born custodian has Premier League pedigree having kept thirteen clean sheets during the second year of his loan spell with Sheffield United as the Blades finished ninth after being promoted from the Championship, with Henderson outstanding in goal.

Henderson, whose only England cap came as a second half substitute in a 3-0 win over the Republic of Ireland in November, had to withdraw from Southgate’s European Championship squad after injuring his hip and wants to avoid another tournament disappointment when the squad is announced for the winter World Cup in Qatar. He has three years to run on his current contract at Old Trafford. Fulham have been heavily linked with former loanee Alphonse Areola, who is currently on loan at West Ham
