Newcastle United plans to strengthen its squad with real stars this summer. Goal.com argues that Magpies have Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak on their list.
- Newcastle United is increasingly confident in keeping in the Premier League;
- Therefore, the management of Magpies makes superpower plans and wants to bring in big stars in the summer;
- The club’s wish list includes La Liga’s Footballer of the Year – Jan Oblak.
Jan Oblak targeted by Newcastle United
Back in January, Newcastle United was one of the main candidates for relegation from the Premier League . However, Eddie Howe has built a team that has been scoring regularly in recent months. Thanks to this, the Magpies got out of the relegation zone and are more and more confident in keeping in the elite. It also means that the new owners of the club can make great power plans again.
And it looks like the Magpies are aiming really high. The Goal.com website argues that the English club lost track of Jan Oblak . Of course, the Slovenian has significantly reduced his flights this season (pun intended), but looking at his achievements as a whole, we are talking about one of the best goalkeepers of his era. It is worth adding that it is the 29-year-old who currently holds the prize for the Best La Liga , which he received for the past calendar year.

The Slovene himself often spoke favorably about the Premier League and did not hide that he would like to be here. However, he could consider transferring only to the team fighting for the title. At the moment – even bearing in mind the huge budget – Newcastle cannot be considered as such.

However, it is difficult to exclude the departure of Oblak from Atletico Madrid . It has been speculated about for several years, and its current form and the likely lack of trophies with the team may accelerate the process. Especially since his contract with Los Colchoneros is valid only until June 2023. If the Spanish champions want to earn something from their star, they have to sell it this summer. The 29-year-old has played 38 games this season. He kept a clean sheet ten times. Want to know more about football news for today and don’t miss the important news?
