According to Spanish publication AS, Liverpool, Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus are all monitoring Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak.

The Slovenia international, who is contracted with the Spanish giants until 2021 and is reported to have a release clause of  €100 million, has had yet another outstanding season for the Rojiblancos, racking up 26 clean sheets so far.

After Atletico's goalless draw with Real Betis on Sunday, Oblak was asked about his future at the club.

"No news. I have the contract that I signed two years ago," he told reporters, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"What will happen? Well, nobody knows, not even me. I prefer to finish the season well and hopefully with a title. Then we'll see, but I have a contract. I do not think of anything other than Atletico.

"Atletico can grow. They have grown a lot and surely will not stop now, although it is not easy.

"I am sure that Atletico will grow and we will see what will happen to me, for the moment I am here. I have a contract until 2021. If I continue, we will grow together and if not, the club will grow as well."
