Chelsea must reportedly pay the £110m release clause of Atlético Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak if they are to sign the Slovenian International this summer according to Goal.
The Slovenia international who is currently regarded in some quarters as the best goalkeeper in the world is among Chelsea's list of goalkeeping targets that will replace Kepa Arrizabalaga who Chelsea are trying to offload this summer, Oblak along with Andre Onana of Ajax and Manchester United's Dean Henderson are Chelsea's primary targets this summer.
The 27-year-old has kept 139 clean sheets in 256 appearances in all competitions for Atlético Madrid since his arrival from Benfica in the summer of 2014 for around £14.5m and he has also received countless individual honours for his displays. Oblak was reportedly prepared to leave Diego Simeone's side last summer before signing a extension with the club until 2023.
Any more for the 27 year-old will solely depend on Chelsea's ability to offload Kepa Arrizabalaga this summer, Kepa has only attracted interest from Valencia, who are only keen on signing the Spain International on a two year loan deal. Sevilla have also indicated an interest in the former Athletic Bilbao, but it remains to be seen whether Chelsea will offload the Spaniard this summer.
