Atletico wants full Oblak release clause while Valencia want Kepa
Frank Lampard has been uncontented with Kepa Arrizabalaga's performance between the sticks so far and this has resulted in Chelsea looking for a replacement. Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak is that ideal replacement but he is going to cost them a huge amount of money.
The first thing Chelsea want to do is to get rid of Kepa and Valencia are said to be interested in signing him on a 2-year loan with an option to buy.
Atletico want Oblak's full release clause without negotiating the fee which is currently at £110 million (€120 million). Chelsea will now have to raise enough funds by selling players if they really want to sign Oblak this summer.

Question of the day
According to Ashley Cole, do you think signing players alone can make Chelsea win the Premier League next season? Or are there other things The Blues can do to be more competitive?
