Breaking News ! Chelsea's 2019/20 domestic campaign may have drawn to a close with the disappointment of losing Saturday evening's FA Cup final to Arsenal at Wembley, but the Blues are continuing to make some big noises in the transfer market. Having already bolstered their attacking options with the additions of Hakim Ziyech from Ajax and Germany international Timo Werner, the Blues are now looking to strengthen their defence and in goal, with those two areas being high up on head coach Frank Lampard's to-do list. Whilst the Stamford Bridge club are being linked with moves for the likes of Kalidou Koulibaly of Napoli and Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell to strengthen their defence, the club are also being linked with a big-money move for Jan Oblak. The Atletico Madrid goalkeeper is considered as one of the very best shot-stoppers in the world and has been closely linked with a summer switch to West London in recent weeks, as Lampard looks to bolster his options between the sticks.

Chelsea make Oblak top transfer priority The Blues have identified Oblak as their top transfer target ahead of the summer window officially opening for business later this month, the Mirror reports. After signing a new deal at the Wanda Metropolitano last year, a £120million buy-out clause was inserted in the goalkeeper's contract. However, Chelsea are prepared to go in with an offer of less than £100million and offer Arrizabalaga to sweeten the deal. Atletico do not want to sell the Slovenian No.1, but they may be forced to because of the financial impact the coronavirus pandemic has brought. Simeone comments on Oblak interest Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has addressed the reports linking Oblak with a summer switch to Stamford Bridge. The Argentine, who has been in charge of Atletico since 2011, addressed the media ahead of his side's clash with Getafe on Thursday and he commented on the claims linking Oblak with an exit from the Spanish capital this summer. (Image: (Roland Krivec/DeFodi Images via Getty Images)) Simeone said: “It is normal that they want a goalkeeper of the characteristics and value that Oblak has and it doesn’t surprise me because he is very good. “For us, he is decisive, very important in the dressing room, he is our captain. “Year after year he has managed to evolve in all the matches, from goalkeeper to his handling with the group, and hopefully he can continue with us. “It is normal to always look for the best, and we have many who are very good, some previous seasons have left, others have stayed, and it is logical and normal for a footballer like Oblak to be loved by anyone. “For us, he is our captain, an important player year after year and hopefully we can continue to count on his work, which is enormous for Atlético de Madrid.” Read More Related Articles Antoine Griezmann agrees with Diego Simeone about Jan Oblak amid Chelsea transfer links Read More Related Articles Jan Oblak could get his dream Chelsea shirt number after sealing transfer but on one condition Marina Granovskaia's deals could fund transfer Oblak won't come cheap and Chelsea will have to help finance moves by cashing in on some of the players already in west London. While a couple of Lampard's current first-team squad such as Michy Batshuayi and Emerson Palmieri could be on the move over the coming months, here we take a look at some forgotten players who the Blues need to part with. Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia could be very busy in the next few months. Blues learn Oblak fee and plot way they can fund it If Chelsea to are to ensure Oblak is standing between the sticks at Stamford Bridge as their first choice goalkeeper next summer then they are going to need a hefty-sized cheque book. The Slovenian international has a buyout clause of €120million in his Atletico contract, meaning any move for the goalkeeper will not come so easily.

Bustamante/Soccrates/Getty Images) But the Blues could be able to fund a deal by offloading Kepa Arrizabalaga this summer, with Valencia, according to a report by Goal, keen on landing the Spain international. Valencia are aiming to offload goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen this summer, meaning Arrizabalaga could become their priority target, which in turn could enable the Blues to fund a move for Oblak. Manchester United join Oblak chase Chelsea have been joined by Premier League rivals Manchester United in the race to sign Atletico Madrid shot-stopper Oblak, a report by talkSPORT claims.

. But with United 'keeper David De Gea having been guilty of committing some costly errors of late, Ole Gunnar Solskjeaer - the United boss - is keeping his options open, with United now being linked with a move for Oblak. The release clause in Oblak's contract is £110million, but Atletico could be willing to accept a lower off because of the financial impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on the club, meaning both Chelsea and Manchester United could be even more tempted to launch a summer move for the Slovenian. Blues open Oblak talks Granovskaia - Chelsea's transfer guru - has opened talks with Atletico Madrid about a summer move for Oblak, a report by the Daily Star claims. Blues chief Lampard has highlighted Oblak as his No.1 target to replace Arrizabalaga between the sticks this summer, with the Atletico star considered as one of the best goalkeepers in world football. And now, according to the report, transfer negotiator Granovskaia has opened talks with the La Liga club as she aims to conclude a deal.

Spanish giants not worried by Oblak interest Atletico Madrid are not too concerned about the prospect of Oblak sealking a summer move to Stamford Bridge, Christian Falk, the head of football, at German publication Sport BILD claims. It is reported that Chelsea have held interest in landing the Slovenian international for more than two months. However, Atletico are not too concerned about Chelsea's interest, as they believe the London club will be unable to fund deals for both Oblak and Havertz, meaning they are not worried about the prospect of losing their star goalkeeper this summer. Hakim Ziyech key to alternative target Although Oblak remains Chelsea's number one goalkeeping target this summer, they are also said to be taking a look at other options should they not be able to persuade Atletico to part with the player. According to the Athletic, One of them options is Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana, and Chelsea's first signing of the summer could play a key role should they decide to make a move for him. Ziyech will provide a scouting report on his former teammate with the players having played together at Ajax. Onana is said to be available for a fee of around £30million. Blues end Oblak interest Chelsea have ended their interest in landing Atletico goalkeeper Oblak this summer, a report by TEAMtalk claims. With a move for the Slovenian international predicted to cost more than £100million, the Blues are now looking at a cheaper alternative in the shape of Burnley and England goalkeeper Nick Pope. The former Charlton Athletic man has been heavily linked with some of Britain's biggest clubs in recent months, with the Clarets goalkeeper now being tipped to seal a £50million move to Stamford Bridge.
