Arsenal are set for significant changes this summer, both on and off the field, and it’s widely been reported that the Gunners are seeking the addition of a new first-choice goalkeeper in the transfer market.
Speculation has attributed the north London giants with an interest in Atletico Madrid’s Slovenia international Jan Oblak and Arsenal will have been put on alert by recent comments from the 25-year-old stopper.
Speaking after his side’s goalless draw with Real Betis this weekend, and ahead of the Europa League semi-final showdown with Arsenal, Oblak refused to commit his future and stated ‘nobody knows’ what will happen in the future.
Asked about any update on his contract status, The Sun quotes him as stating:
“No news. I have the contract that I signed two years ago. What will happen well nobody knows, not even me. I prefer to finish the season well and hopefully with a title. Then we’ll see but I have a contract. I do not think of anything other than Atletico.”
Oblak is reported to have a whopping £89m release-clause in his contract at the Wanda Metropolitano, which could cause issues for Arsenal.
