Perin: ‘Not thinking about move’

Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin insists he’s not thinking about a move, despite links to Inter and Liverpool.

The shot-stopper was linked with the Nerazzurri this week, and the 22-year-old’s agent has previously admitted to speaking with the English side.

However, the player himself insists he’s only thinking about the Grifone.

“My friends send me messages on WhatsApp with everything written about me, but I don’t know anything and I’m not thinking about it,” Perin assured assembled media at the Values Cup.

“When I was little I didn’t dream of playing for Real Madrid or in Manchester, I just wanted to be idolised by the fans.

“As a child I thought I’d be an idol for the Latina fans, but to get that feeling from Genoa, where I grew up in football is a fantastic feeling.

“They make me feel loved, and because of that I’m happy here and at the moment I’m not thinking about anything else.”
