Juventus keen on Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak

Juventus appear to have a genuine interest in signing Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

According to the football transfer rumours in Italian Media (Football Italia), Juventus are keen on Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

The Slovenia international has joined Atletico Madrid from Benfica for a fee in the region of 16 million euros in July 2014. The 24-year-old has a valid contract with Atletico Madrid until June 2021.

Since his arrival from Benfica, Jan Oblak has conceded 75 goals and provided 67 clean sheets in 118 games for Atletico Madrid.

Jan Oblak has represented Slovenia at Under-19 and Under-21 level, winning 22 caps, before making his senior international debut in September 2012. As a member of Slovenia national football team, Jan Oblak has won 15 caps.

Adding a goalkeeper remains Juventus’s top priority and Massimiliano Allegri will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming months.

The report claims that Juventus manager has extensively scouted Jan Oblak and is considering a move for the goalkeeper.

The Slovenia international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of goalkeeper Massimiliano Allegri wants to target in next transfer windows.

Massimiliano Allegri is a long term admirer of Jan Oblak and believes he can get the most out of the Slovenia international.

The Slovenia international will definitely be a good addition to the Juventus side.

According to the report in Italian Media, Gianluigi Buffon is likely to retire at the end of the season and Juventus are interested in Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak. The Slovenia international’s release clause is set at 100 million euros so Juventus would have to look to lower that by sending players to Atletico Madrid in exchange.

How strong that interest is and whether Juventus will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
