The Evening Standard have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur could turn to Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak to replace Hugo Lloris next summer.

Lloris has shown clear signs of decline this season and various names have been put forward over recent weeks and months as potential replacements for the Tottenham captain.

Chief among those has been Jordan Pickford, with The Sun claiming last week that Spurs and Manchester United are both on ‘alert’ amidst the deadlock in the England number one’s contract talks with Everton.

Over the last few days, Raya has also emerged as a target for Tottenham, with reports indicating that the Spaniard would be open to leaving the Brentford Community Stadium if the North London club come calling in the summer (GiveMeSport).

The Evening Standard have now revealed that Spurs also hold an interest in Oblak, who has been a pillar between the sticks for Atletico for almost a decade.

The publication adds that the 30-year-old is keen on moving to the Premier League but it is asserted that the Slovenian would ‘cost significantly more’ than Raya would.

Oblak’s current contract at the Metropolitano Stadium runs until 2028 (Transfermarkt), which means that Atletico could demand well upwards of £50m for their number one. I do not think spending big money on the 30-year-old would appeal to Spurs when younger options like Raya, Pickford and Meslier are potentially available.
