Benfica have serious interest in Manchester United keeper Dean Henderson, according to reports.

The 20-year-old England youth international is out of contract in the summer and could find himself with a couple of interesting offers to consider. Henderson was linked with Arsenal, but there are now claims from Portugal suggest that Benfica are on the case as well.

According to O Jogo via Sport Witness, Benfica are looking to take advantage of the English market by signing young English players and then selling them back for much higher fees. They already signed Chris Willock on a free transfer after he opted not to renew his contract with Arsenal.

Portuguese clubs have a history of signing young players for cheap prices and then selling them on for significant profit. It was just last summer that Benfica made over £70m by selling Ederson and Victor Lindelof to Manchester City and Manchester United respectively.

Henderson is currently on loan at League One side Shrewsbury Town, and has helped them reach the top of the table with a string of clean sheets. He was also part of the England u20 side that won the u20 World Cup in the summer, and has recently made the step-up to u21 level.
