Milan are ready to make Genoa an offer in a bid to sign 50 per cent of Mattia Perin’s contract, reports the Gazzetta dello Sport.
Perin is a 19-year-old goalkeeper who is currently spending this season on loan with Pescara.
Widely regarded as a custodian of the future, the Diavolo are apparently very keen on the youngster’s signature.
The Rossoneri are said to be willing to offer €5m to the Marassi outfit for the player’s co-ownership.
Perin, who has also been linked with Manchester City, is contracted to the port club until the summer of 2015.
