Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea are battling to land the best goalkeeper on the planet – according to the manager of the player, at least.
This is the opinion of Atletico Madrid head coach Diego Simeone, who has heaped a lot of praise on his shot-stopper Jan Oblak amid speculations linking him with a transfer to the English Premier League.
Jan Oblak has been a key part of this Atletico Madrid team for some time now, and he seems ready to become a player in demand this summer transfer window as Arsenal and Liverpool allegedly do battle over the goalie, according to a report by Spanish outlet AS.
The 25-year-old safe hand would surely make a decent addition for either of those Premier League teams considering their issues in goal presently, while reigning 2017 Premier League champions Chelsea have also been strongly linked with the Atletico goalie as a potential replacement for Belgium international shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois.
The Daily Express have named the West London club as possible suitors for the goalkeeper with an £88million buyout clause, which could well be seen as a good bargain if Oblak is indeed the best goalkeeper in the world as Argentine tactician Simeone says.
The South American has been cited in the Metro that the goalkeeper is the best shot-stopper in the world of football.
Spanish la Liga side Atletico Madrid are currently working to bring in the best possible footballers, players who can raise the profile and level of the football club and says he hopes Jan Oblak will stay at the club for long time.
