Paris Saint-Germain keen on Jan Oblak

Atletico Madrid are bracing for what is likely to be a lively summer at Vicente Calderon.

After missing out on major trophies this season and failing to mount a more serious La Liga title challenge, Atletico Madrid are likely to see a number of first-star players depart in the summer.

And while Los Rojiblancos striker Antoine Griezmann keeps grabbing the headlines with his reported Manchester United move, highly-rated Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak is another in-demand star.

France Football has learned that the 24-year-old Slovenia international has emerged as a target for Paris Saint-Germain who consider Oblak to be a significant upgrade to PSG’s current No. 1 Kevin Trapp.

Les Parisiens are under pressure to bolster their ranks after a disappointing season which saw them lose out on Ligue 1 title to AS Monaco and they are keen to rebuild from goal up.

Jan Oblak has been in fantastic form for Atletico Madrid ever since his arrival in 2014 and his fine form has already turned the head of Manchester United, who have identified Oblak as a possible replacement for David De Gea should the Spaniard leave for Real Madrid.

Goalie like Oblak is a great asset for any team but if you have decent defending line up then the burden on goalie is reduced to a great extent. Kevin trapp has been in fine form what paris should really look to change is their defending line up a decent one but thiago silva is aging and is not up to the mark the centre defenders are very young and an in form experienced defender is the need of an hour.
