As the summer transfer window comes closer and closer Juventus are being linked with more and more potential transfers.
The 25-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Italy international was signed by Genoa in July 2008 from Pistoiese for a fee of 300,000 euros. The 25-year-old has a contract until 2019 with the club.
Since his arrival from Pistoiese, Perin has conceded 182 goals and provided 46 clean sheets in 150 games.
He’s incredibly experienced for a 25-year-old and still has tons of room for growth.
Perin has represented Italy at Under-17, Under-18, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 28 caps, before making his senior international debut in Noveber 2014. As a member of Italy national football team, Perin won one cap.
The Italy international has impressed in Serie A this season and is starting to attract the interest of bigger clubs.
Juventus have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
The report claims that Juventus manager has extensively scouted Mattia Perin and is considering a move for the goalkeeper.
Juventus will be desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
According to Football Italia, “It’s reported Mattia Perin has accepted a move to Juventus, who must now negotiate with Genoa. Gianluigi Buffon is expected to announce his retirement this week, and the Bianconeri want another quality goalkeeper to compete with Wojciech Szczesny next season. It emerged last week that they are interested in Perin, though general manager Giuseppe Marotta insisted “we’re a long way from a real negotiation”. Now though the Gazzetta dello Sport is reporting that the Bianconeri have made the Grifone goalkeeper their first choice, and he is keen to move to Turin.”

So far Juventus and Genoa have been unable to agree a fee for Perin, with Genoa wanting to hold out for 20 million euros but Juventus’s board arguing that this is an unrealistic fee.
The Italy international will definitely be a good addition to the Juventus side, which will be competing in the Champions League next season.
Will Mattia Perin be a Juventus player soon? Only time will tell.
