Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak is being monitored by Arsenal, according to Mundo Deportivo (via Calciomercato.com).

Evening Standard journalist James Olley revealed last week that the Gunners may consider pursuing the Slovenian international, and it looks like the Catalan press are backing this up.

The publication states that Oblak is being eyed as a long term replacement for Petr Cech, who has had some poor performances this season.

Whether the 25 year old is a realistic target, it remains to be seen. Real Madrid are looking at signing a new goalkeeper with AS reporting that the Atletico stopper is on the Spanish club’s short list.

Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be pursuing a move for Oblak, while Liverpool are also believed to be keen.

The Slovenian is no doubt one of the world’s top goalkeepers but the cost of signing him would be substantial. The stopper reportedly has a release clause of €100m (£88.4m).
