Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is being urged to address the stopper issue by launching a raid on Atletico Madrid for Jan Oblak.
There has been alot of transfer speculation in the media suggesting that Frank Lampard is keen to sign a new stopper in the summer transfer window as he has not been impressed by the performances of Kepa, who has struggled between the sticks.
And that has led to some speculation in the media suggesting that we are ready to make a move and try to bring in Oblak to Stamford Bridge in a move that could cost the club a massive £100 million.
Oblak, who saw his four-season stranglehold on the Zamora Trophy – awarded to the best goalkeeper in La Liga – ended by Thibaut Courtois, has proven himself as one of the best in the world over six years at Atleti.
Sinclair feels Oblak should be made the top target at Stamford Bridge, with a man widely regarded as the finest keeper on the planet considered to be capable of sparking a title challenge at Stamford Bridge.
“It’s not a secret that Frank lost this trust in Kepa,” former Blues defender Sinclair told Gentingbet. “In previous games he’s made some vital mistakes.
“However, you have to remember that he’s a really young goalkeeper, the £71m price tag shadows the fact that he’s a young goalkeeper, fairly inexperienced in playing senior football and the standards are set very high for him.
“At the same time, if you get the opportunity to bring in Jan Oblak then I think if you want to compete with Liverpool and Manchester City, Chelsea need a goalkeeper of the same standard and certainly Jan Oblak would produce that.”
