Perin to Genoa in January

Juventus goalkeeper Mattia Perin will reportedly return to Genoa on loan in January, as the two clubs are close to concluding a deal.

The 27-year-old hasn’t played a single minute this season after a deal to sign for Portuguese side Benfica collapsed due to a failed medical.

Perin then returned to Turin for treatment on that shoulder injury that’s kept him out of action for the first three months of the season.

La Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira states that Perin will re-join Genoa once the winter transfer window opens next week.

According to Schira, Genoa President Enrico Preziosi is concluding a deal with Juve and it will be ironed out in due course.

Juve originally signed Perin from Genoa in the summer of 2018 for an estimated €13m.

He only played for Juve nine times, and wanted a move elsewhere last summer in order to gain more playing time.
