BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,23RD APRIL,2021-Chelsea are reportedly ready to swoop for Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak this summer.
Despite splashing out on Kepa Arrizabalaga and Edouard Mendy since the summer of 2018, the Blues are thought to be in the market for a new shot-stopper ahead of the 2021-22 season.
Thomas Tuchel‘s side have been tipped to swoop for AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, who is due to become a free agent this summer, but they supposedly have other priorities in between the sticks.
According to Fichajes.net, Chelsea are set to do battle with Paris Saint-Germain for Oblak’s signature if he decides to leave the Wanda Metropolitano this summer, and Diego Simeone is already eyeing up replacements.
The report claims that Atletico will move for Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez if Oblak does head for Stamford Bridge, with the Argentine impressing his compatriot Simeone this season.
Oblak has kept 16 clean sheets from 32 La Liga outings this season, but he has won just one Europa League and UEFA Super Cup crown since joining Atletico from Benfica in 2014.
