Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak has not ruled out a potential summer transfer switch to Chelsea.
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.
Probed on rumours linking him with a move here – and suggestions he would consider a move if the Spanish club’s ambition does not match his own – Oblak told AS: ‘This is not the time to talk about that, right now we’ve got Leipzig to think about.
‘I’ll assess the season when the last game is over, and hopefully we’ll have three more games left to play. Then there will be time after that to talk.
‘But first, Leipzig. I’m really looking forward to it.’
The fact that he has not ruled out a potential exit from Madrid just shows that he may be open to the idea of a transfer move and if WE were able to get this transfer deal done, it would most certainly be one of the best of the window.
