Tottenham Hotspur would make a move for Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak this summer

In an interview with CaughtOffSide, British agent Haydn Dodge said that Tottenham Hotspur would make a move for Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak this summer.

It has been reported by Dodge that Yassine Bounou of Sevilla is on Tottenham’s radar as they want to get a new goalkeeper in the summer of 2023.

He also said that Spurs might attempt to acquire Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Oblak, a Slovenian international who earns £307,000 per week (SalarySport).

Dodge said: “In defence, a change of goalkeeper is inevitable. Hugo Lloris is 36 years old and with inconsistencies and injuries creeping into his game, Spurs have already started looking for a new number one. I know Sevilla’s Yassine Bounou is right at the top of their list so I expect them to try and do something there in the summer. I’d also expect Jan Oblak to come into the picture considering Spurs’ strong relationship with Atletico Madrid.”

We think it would be a fantastic and exciting acquisition if Tottenham Hotspur were able to bring Jan Oblak to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the next summer transfer window.

Some have speculated that Manchester United might sign world-class goalie Oblak. At 30, the Slovenian is at the peak of his career and would be an instant starter for Tottenham. We do not believe, however, that Spurs will be successful in their pursuit of the goalie.

For starters, Oblak gets paid a ton of money by Atletico. There’s also the fact that the goalie could want to transfer to Tottenham. Even if the Premier League team Spurs are participating in the UEFA Champions League this season, it doesn’t mean they will continue to do so in future seasons.

Atletico Madrid is a perennial championship contender in La Liga and a frequent Champions League participant. Furthermore, Oblak is under contract with Atletico Madrid until the summer of 2028.

There will therefore be a significant transfer fee demanded by the Spanish club. Moreover, Daniel Levy, chairman of Tottenham, is not known for his penchant for lavish expenditure.
