Liverpool have expressed their interest in Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin, according to the Italian star’s agent.

The Reds have been linked with a host of shot stoppers in recent months as their first-choice goalkeeper Simon Mignolet continues to struggle this season.

Italy international Perin has kept three clean sheets in 14 Serie A appearances this term, including shutouts against AC Milan and reigning champions Juventus.

And the 22-year-old’s agent Moreno Roggi reckons Perin will move abroad after he confirmed interest from the 18-time English champions.

“There has been contact with Liverpool,” Roggi told Rai Sport.

“For Perin I can only imagine a future abroad. I would like him to remain in Italy, but only clubs from abroad can afford him.

“England? It’s a possibility.”

Perin made his Italy debut last month as the young goalkeeper helped the Azzurri beat Albania 1-0.
