Chelsea Heads Up In Pursuit Of La Liga Goalkeeper

-

Jan Oblak has not ruled out a potential summer move to Chelsea though says he will only think about his long-term future after the Champions League this summer.

Frank Lampard seems to has lost faith in club-record acquisition Kepa Arrizabalaga after a series of blunders and poor performances, even dropping him at the end of the campaign in favour of veteran Willy Caballero.

SaveChelsea understands that signing a new Goalkeeper has become a top priority for the west London club, with Jan identified as the club’s number one target – though Los Rojiblancos have no desire to sell their star Goalkeeper.

He is currently preparing for UCL quarter-final versus RB Leipzig and, when asked about the speculation, insisted Jan was only focused on the upcoming game – though suggested he’ll assess his options once Atletico’s season ends.

Probed on rumours mentioning him with Chelsea – and suggestions he’d consider a move if the Spanish club’s ambition doesn’t match his own – Oblak told AS: ‘This is not the time for that, now it’s Leipzig.

‘I’ll look back at the season when the last game is over, and hopefully, we’ll have three more [games to play]. Then there will be time to talk. ‘But first, Leipzig. I’m really looking forward to it.’

Asked why his aspirations haven’t been fulfilled, Oblak continued: ‘There is the goal of the club and its needs [qualifying for the Champions League] and then there is what I had in my head, my hope.

‘This was to compete more with Barca and [Real] Madrid until the end of the season, but it couldn’t be. The club’s target was met, but my hopes weren’t.’
