Has Diego Someone confirmed Chelsea's interest in Jan Oblak?

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Someone says Chelsea's reported interest in Jan Oblak does not surprise him but he hopes that the goalkeeper will remain with Atletico Madrid.

The speculation will not surprise fans either as we have withness a massive dip in form of Kepa Arrizabalaga. The Chelsea shot stopper who arrived last season for over £70 million has failed to live up to that price tag. His form between the sticks this season has been nothing to write home about.

Kepa Arrizabalaga's stats this season

Kepa has played 25 games in the premier league so far with just six clean sheets, six games in the Champions League with one clean sheet (his first season in the competition) and also one clean sheet in the FA Cup.

Chelsea will be looking to replace Kepa with Oblak with report saying that the deal could involve Kepa going the other way in a player-plus-cash deal.

Jan Oblak has picked up LaLiga best keeper for four seasons in a row. This season, in 36 games Oblak has conceded just 26 goals helping Atetico Madrid to another top four finish.

Speaking to reporters, Someone said

"In previous seasons, some players left the club and others remained, but I think it is logical a player like Oblak is wanted by many teams.

"He is our captain and a very important player in the last few years. I hope he can continue with us because he is very important for Atletico Madrid."
