European giants bracing themselves for mammoth Arsenal bid

Arsenal are seeking to significantly improve their ranks this season, after missing out on Champions League football for another year, and the Gunners have been linked with a number of high-profile deals.

New boss Unai Emery has a number of takes to complete in the months ahead and it’s widely reported that he’s in the market for a new first-choice goalkeeper, where a mouthwatering move for Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak has been touted.

The Daily Star now reports that the Europa League champions are bracing themselves for a mammoth bid for the Slovakia international, as they expect either Arsenal or their Premier League rivals Liverpool will make an offer that cannot be refused.

With a reported release-clause of £88m, Oblak would command a club-record fee from Arsenal but the Gunners have shown a willingness to spend in recent seasons – breaking their transfer record three times in the past four years, including twice this season.
