Ivo Grbic Close To Leaving For Lille: Backup Keeper Desperately Needed Now


French champions LOSC Lille have decided to make a bid for Croatian stopper Ivo Grbic. The second-string keeper wants first-team action at a club and with the Croatian national team. Grbic is set to replace Leo Jardim, who recently conceded four to middling southern side OGC Nice. Atletico Madrid will need depth in the goalie position, especially with youth product Miguel San Roman leaving for Huesca. There isn't a goalie that can backup for Oblak in the youth ranks that I know of, so Atleti will pursue a keeper aggressively in the market. Expect a signing soon around 3 million euros, as that's the amount that Grbic might go for. I accidentally predicted this in this article.
