Chelsea remain keen on signing Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak if Thibaut Courtois leaves Stamford Bridge, according to AS.

Sky Sports pundit Guillem Balague, who also works for the Madrid based newspaper, says that the Slovenian is one of a number of candidates that the Blues are considering in the event that Courtois opts against signing a new contract.

The Belgian international is said to be open to a move to Real Madrid in order to be closer to his family, but Chelsea have reportedly offered the stopper more than £200,000 a week to extend his current deal beyond 2019.

Oblak meanwhile is believed to be in the middle of his own contract negotiations with Atletico. The 24 year old has also been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain and AS reported last week that manager Diego Simeone has pleaded with the club’s board to give the stopper what he wants in order to ward off other teams.

The keeper reportedly has a €100m release clause which Atletico are looking to increase, and if he fails to agree a new deal, Chelsea could well take advantage of the situation.
