Chelsea may reportedly look to sign Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak in a deal which would also include Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Chelsea are reportedly considering whether to launch an approach to sign Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

With Kepa Arrizabalaga continuing to struggle for consistency between the sticks, Blues boss Frank Lampard is open to parting ways with the Spaniard.

While a bid for Ajax's Andre Onana is a possibility, The Mirror suggests that Chelsea may look to bring in Oblak as Arrizabalaga's replacement.

Aware that the Slovenia international possesses a release clause well in excess of £100m, the Premier League outfit are keen to include Arrizabalaga in a part-exchange deal.

Nevertheless, despite potentially being able to reduce Oblak's valuation during negotiations, Chelsea may still need to part with at least £70m to get a deal over the line.

Oblak still has three years remaining on his contract at Wanda Metropolitano.
