Chelsea propose Kepa Arrizabalaga swap deal with Atletico Madrid for Jan Oblak.
The offer includes a swap for out-of-favor goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga plus £25million as the West London outfit attempts to lure the Slovenian international away from the Metropolitano Stadium.
Atletico’s Oblak, 27, is among Europe’s finest goalkeepers winning LaLiga Best Goalkeeper award four years running between 2016 and 2019.
Kepa, 25, who has struggled this season under new boss Frank Lampard, has been left out of the starting XI in the last four matches with Lampard opting for the services of veteran goalkeeper Willy Caballero.
The Spaniard has managed six clean sheets this season while Oblak has notched up 16 in all competitions.
