    Agent of Perin; "Mattia's future will be at Genoa"

    According to his agent Moreno Roggi, the future of 24-year-old Italy goalkeeper Mattia Perin is with his current club Genoa. In an interview with Radio TMW, Roggi set the record straight after rumours of a possible January departure by explaining that; “Mattia is a real talent and this is his fifth season in Serie A. He’s been unfortunate at international level as he’s fallen between Gianluigi Buffon and Gigio Donnarumma. For me however, Perin remains Buffon’s natural heir”.
    When asked to put a current value on his client, Roggi replied; “It’s between 15-20 million but it dependes who is asking. He will certainly stay until the end of the season and even beyond”. Roggi then spoke about another Genoa star causing interest, Leonardo Pavoletti. He explained that; “He is a level headed guy who started down in Serie D and I believe he can withstand the pressure of playing at a top club. He reminds me of Luca Toni but I don’t know if (President) Preziosi is willing to sell”.
