Liverpool transfers: Mattia Perin’s agent confirms Reds contact
Mattia Perin's agent claims Liverpool have made contract with the goalkeeper
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.
