And according to talkSPORT, United are already closing in on Henderson's replacement for the upcoming campaign.

Erik ten Hag's side have spoken with former Lazio shot-stopper Strakosha’s representatives.

The 27-year-old Albania international became a free agent at the end of last season.

Strakosha made 31 appearances across all competitions for Lazio in the last campaign, with eight of those coming in the Europa League.

Fellow Premier League side Fulham were keen on the keeper and enquired about the possibility of a move.

However, the Cottagers are said to be closing in on Arsenal backup Bernd Leno.

Forest, who went on to sign United's Henderson, as well as Chelsea and Leicester have also been linked with Strakosha.

The keeper is one of few transfer targets who doesn't have experience playing in Holland OR someone boss Ten Hag is familiar with.

United's targets so far consist of past or present Ajax players, where Ten Hag managed for five years.

The Prem giants are trying to negotiate deals for Ajax duo Lisandro Martinez AND Antony, following agreements on personal terms.

Free agent Christian Eriksen is also said to have reached an agreement to join Ten Hag at United.

Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt have also been linked.
