In January, Newcastle United signed Kieran Trippier from Atletico Madrid, and now the club is reportedly eyeing the signing of Jan Oblak this summer.
In light of the club’s recent Saudi acquisition, the Magpies are in a position to make a significant splash by signing goalkeeper Oblak.
The Slovenian goalkeeper has been one of the best in the world for the last few years, having previously been connected with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Paris Saint-Germain.
According to La Razon, Newcastle could now be realistic candidates for his signature, with the 29-year-old reaching the conclusion of his contract with the club.
It is probable that Oblak will be permitted to leave the club for less than the €120 million release clause he has in his contract.
Then NUFC would be wise to make a move for this world-class player, who has the potential to elevate Eddie Howe’s team to new heights under his tutelage.
