Zenit to make Perin bid - report

Zenit St Petersburg are preparing a summer bid for on-loan Pescara goalkeeper Mattia Perin, according to reports in Russia.

Moscow-based newspaper Izvestia claim that Luciano Spaletti's men will make a move for the 20-year-old at the end of the season, but may have to fight off a number of other clubs.

Rumours have been circulating around the Italy Under-21 international since the start of the campaign, with Milan seemingly in pole position for the Delfini shot-stopper.

A bid of around €10m could push Genoa, his parent club, into a decision, but Matteo Roggi, the player's representative, has claimed that only €20m will force a move.
