“The Premier League is an interesting league” Oblak hands Arsenal transfer boost with latest comments

Jan Oblak has handed Arsenal a transfer boost after admitting that he is interested in the Premier League.

The Slovenian is one of the best goalkeepers in the world at the moment and looks set to help Atletico Madrid win the Spanish league title.

He has been their number one for a long time and has always attracted the attention of Europe’s best teams.

Arsenal has a long-standing interest in him, but he has always been considered a long shot.

He looked settled at the Spanish capital and would probably cost a fortune to sign.

However, in a boost to Arsenal’s chances of landing him, he recently granted an interview and refused to commit his long-term future to Atletico by insisting that no one knows what the future holds.

He then spoke about his admiration for the Premier and says he loves to challenge himself.

The former Benfica youngster, 28, told Goal: “It is difficult to know what can happen in the future. You have a contract. 

“The Premier League is an interesting league and I don’t know what will happen in the future.

“I like it. I am a person who likes new challenges.

“But as I said I have been at Atleti for seven years, a long time has passed, I am happy and I don’t know what will happen in the future. 

“If you asked me seven years ago if I would be at Atleti, I can only say that I am happy because this year we are fighting for the title.

“That is what I want – that my team is competitive enough to fight for titles.”

Bernd Leno has had an inconsistent season at Arsenal and Stan Kroenke might want to impress the club’s fans by signing an expensive goalkeeper as the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea have done in recent seasons.

    From curret status of Arsenal , no player may want to jon Arsenal. Sad but true. Arsene Wenger some how manged to get top 4. Current owner want to milk the club and he is not a true football lover.

      The first 2 sentences are true. The last is just insane.

    Yes Martin, Kroenke “might want to impress the clubs fans” but he would best do that by selling the club to someone who cares for it. The chance of Kroenke allowing us to sign a world class keeper for around £40 mill are about the same as that flying pig flying over my house right now landing in my garden!

          Don’t like the collar, Kev! You?

            Yeah it’s a bit weird Sue but looks amazing compared to that Liverpool kit red and orange absolutely dreadful no wonder Nike is paying them so much money 😂 so Kane is looking to jump ship if Son goes too Spurs are in serious trouble 😀

            Throw back to earlier times and would look great with JVC on the front and Bergkamp on the back.

          3. Kev82 says:

            Always loved JVC Declan 👌 I still cherish my burgundy top with Bergkamp on the back the last top I got with his name on it.

          4. Sue says:

            Any Pool kit is dreadful 😉
            I wonder where he’ll end up, hope it won’t be City… and what they’ll do with the money – which should be an awful lot – remember the Bale money – Soldado, Paulinho etc etc 🤣 (world beaters!!)

      very true, we would find something wrong. But, and it is a huge but, if this were even possible it would be a fantastic signing…

    Kroenke signing expensive goalie to impress fans is as unlikely as Arsenal winning EPL with Arteta at the helm. Just look what he is up to. He is about to sell a player who is breaking goal scoring records inorder to sign one loaned to us but who can’t hit a barn door.
    Its a repeat of Martinez disaster. The kid was marvelous, winning us FA Cup.and league Cup but.did’nt hesitate to sell him for a tenner.

      We haven’t won the league cup since 93
