Arsenal legend Ian Wright has suggested to Sky Sports that Liverpool should make a move for Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak in the summer transfer window.

Wright made the suggestion while discussing how Liverpool can challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title next season.

“I think if Liverpool are definitely going to challenge City, for me, I would get that keeper, Oblak-kind of like stature, that top keeper that can win you games with saves,” Wright told Sky Sports.

Good signing

Oblak is one of the best goalkeepers in Europe and has been in great form for Atletico for a while now.

The 25-year-old would be a stunning signing for Liverpool and would take the Reds to a great level at the back.

The Slovenia international is a brilliant shot-stopper and is also good with the ball at his feet, and the former Benfica goalkeeper would be superb long-term signing for Liverpool.

Expensive

Oblak, though, will not come cheap. According to The Mirror, the Slovenia international has a release clause of €100 million (£86.57m) in his contract at Atletico.

However, if Liverpool want to challenge for the Premier League title and regularly compete in the Champions League, then they will have to spend big.
