Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly in pole position to secure the signature of Slovenian goalkeeper Jan Oblak after having met Atletico Madrid's £52m asking price.

The Atleti shot-stopper has recently hinted his desire to move on to a fresh club after having failed to win trophies in both the domestic and European competitions.

According to France Football, Les Parisiens are leading the pursuit of the highly-rated goalkeeper with the club's owners having made the first move to secure his signature.

Les Parisiens boss Unai Emery has used both Alphonse Areola and Kevin Trapp in different stages of the campaign, but he is on the lookout for a world-class keeper, who could make the difference on the day.

Oblak kept a total of 15 clean sheets in 30 league outings this season, and he is regarded as the perfect fit for the number one role at Parc des Princes.

Mancunian clubs Manchester City and Manchester United are also assessing the player's situation at Atleti as they seek to find potential replacements for Claudio Bravo and David de Gea respectively.

United's De Gea is understood to be made his mind up for a move to Real Madrid this summer while Bravo has yet to justify his position with the Citizens.
