Arsenal to bid for Genoa Perin

Arsenal to bid for Genoa Perin

Arsenal are weighting up a potential move for on-loan Pescara stalwart Mattia Perin to strengthen their goalkeeping options.

The 20-year-old goalie has impressed the visiting Arsenal scouts with a string of excellent performances while on a season-loan deal at Pescara from Genoa. Although Arsenal have considerably talented goalkeeper at their disposal - Wojciech Szczesny, his inconsistency and error-proneness means they should try and sign a potential replacement.

Perin’s agent revealed Arsenal along with AC Milan and Barcelona have contacted him to enquire about the potential availability of his client. “There are many clubs interested in him: Arsenal, Barcelona, AC Milan.”

However the agent is determined his client remains at Genoa for at least one more season. ‘Currently, however, there is only one certainty about Mattia’s future: he will return to Genoa at the end of his loan and there is a mutual intention for him to spend at least one season in a Genoa shirt. Just a month ago we extended his contract until 2017 and Mattia’s cost is at least €20 million (£17.4m). I am 99 per cent sure he will be Genoa’s goalkeeper next season.”

Arsene Wenger is also said to be try and land Liverpool’s Pepe Reina or Sunderland’s Simon Mignolet, should Perin be not available.
