Arsenal and Chelsea will reportedly battle for the signature of Atletico Madrid keeper Jan Oblak at the end of the campaign.
As reported by The Express, The Gunners are in need of a replacement for the ageing Petr Cech, who has been out of form this campaign, while Chelsea are wary of Thibaut Courtois’ possible reservations over a return to Spain.
The Belgian goalkeeper, who spent time on loan with Atletico earlier in his Chelsea career, has allegedly put contract discussions with the West Londoners on hold while he ponders his future in West London.
The outlet adds that Oblak, who has played in 29 La Liga matches for Diego Simeone’s team this campaign, has a £88m release clause in his deal which sides could activate this summer.
Liverpool are also allegedly monitoring proceedings with Oblak, as the Reds look for a long-term solution to their goalkeeping situation.
