Genoa: Juve want Perin, but…

Genoa have confirmed that Juventus are interested in Mattia Perin but warn he would be ‘wasted’ as a No 2 goalkeeper and that ‘Napoli also want him’.

Enrico Preziosi’s remarks come on the same day that Juve had earmarked Perin as Wojciech Szczesny’s deputy next season, with the Pole set to take the baton from Gianluigi Buffon.

Enrico Preziosi’s remarks come on the same day that Juve had earmarked Perin as Wojciech Szczesny’s deputy next season, with the Pole set to take the baton from Gianluigi Buffon.

“It’s true, in the last Lega [Serie A] meeting in Rome, Marotta stopped me and said we had to talk about Mattia,” the President told Juvenews.eu.

“Now I’m waiting for a phone call so we can sit at a table. Becoming Juve’s No 2? I don’t know, but he’s such a good goalkeeper, that he’d be a waste.

“Juve, among others, must hurry up because Napoli also want him and negotiations could start soon.”
