Insider claims top 25-year-old goalkeeper doesn’t want Liverpool FC move
Sunday Times reporter Duncan Castles claims Jan Oblak doesn't want to swap Atletico Madrid for Liverpool FC
Jan Oblak doesn’t want to move to Liverpool FC this season, according to Sunday Times reporter Duncan Castles.
Liverpool FC are in the market to sign a new goalkeeper in the summer transfer window following the Champions League final.
The Reds have relied upon Loris Karius to help them to reach the Kiev showpiece following knockout stage victories over Porto, Man City and Roma.
However, the German shot stopper made two huge mistakes in Liverpool FC’s 3-1 loss to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League final.
Liverpool FC have been regularly linked with a swoop to sign Brazil international Alisson Becker over the past few months.
However, Real Madrid are thought to be leading the race to sign the AS Roma shot stopper in the current transfer market.
Oblak has been listed as another potential contender to replace Karius but Atletico Madrid have placed a hefty price tag on the shot stopper.
Sunday Times reporter Castles has ruled out Oblak moved to Liverpool FC in the summer transfer window.
“Courtois only wants to go to certain clubs,” Castles told the Transfer Window podcast.
“Real Madrid are persistently in contact with him but there are no serious offers.
“Atletico would have to sign Oblak, who is wanted by Liverpool. People close to Oblak are saying he doesn’t want to go to Liverpool.”
The Reds finished in fourth place in the Premier League table to ensure their continued participation in the Champions League.
Liverpool FC have signed AS Monaco midfielder Fabinho and RB Leipzig star Naby Keita.
