Frank Lampard is understood to be in the market for a new goalkeeper with keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga making a string of high-profile errors last campaign.
The Blues boss is aiming to rebuild his backline after his side conceded 54 goals in the top-flight over their 2019/20 campaign.
According to a report by AS, Jan was left frustrated by Atletico’s lack of silverware last season as they crashed out of the UCL at the quarter-final stages to RB Leipzig and finished 17 points behind city rivals Real Madrid.
That disappointment has led to Oblak – who is considered among the best goalkeepers in the world – having some doubts regarding the sporting project at the club.
Los Rojiblancos remain firm in their stance that any club looking to land their No.1 must pay his €120 million (£108m) release clause.
The report claims that Chelsea are attentive to Oblak’s situation, while Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain is also a possible destination for the keeper.
Responding to the links to the Blues before Atletico’s Champions League exit to Leipzig, the 27-year-old star refused to rule out a switch to Stamford Bridge.
