With Chelsea reportedly close to signing Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz, Atletico Madrid are reportedly convinced the Blues will be unable to sign £102 million goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is keen on signing a goalkeeper this summer with record signing Kepa Arrizabalaga struggling to impress this season

Christian Falk tweeted: “Update @ChelseaFC & Jan Oblak: The Bosses of @Atleti Madrid know since two month of the interest of Chelsea in Jan Oblak. Atlético doubt that Chelsea can afford Oblak AND Havertz. therefore Atletico remains relaxed.”

Ajax’s Andre Onana, Man United’s Dean Henderson, and even Barcelona’s Marc-Andre ter Stegen are reportedly on Chelsea’s shortlist as potential replacements for Kepa.
