Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia is set to have a few busy months ahead of her as she looks to fund the transfer of highly-rated target Jan Oblak.
Chelsea have already signed 2 players ahead of next season, but they still need reinforcement in defence, especially in the goalkeeping department, and they have set Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak as their main target.
Oblak will be very expensive to sign as the goalkeeper has a £120 million release clause in his contract. Chelsea are already planning to pay less than £100 million and also include Kepa Arrizabalaga in the deal. Therefore, Granovskaia is set to embark on a busy few months in other to sell some players who are no longer needed at Chelsea.
