Genoa look at Bruno Peres

Genoa have reportedly set their sights on landing Roma right-back Bruno Peres.

Peres is currently on loan at Sao Paulo with an option to buy.

However, he has made just two appearances since February and Globoesporte does not expect the Brazilian side to retain him.

With that in mind, the newspaper writes Genoa will dive in for the 29-year-old if his loan spell is terminated early.

Peres made his name at Torino, impressing enough in his two seasons at the club to earn a move to Roma in 2016.

Meanwhile, Di Marzio claims tracks are also hot for Eintracht Frankfurt attacker Daichi Kamada and Belgrano defender Bruno Amione.

The many problems of Mattia Perin

A failed Benfica medical was just the latest setback for Mattia Perin, as Football Italia Chief Correspondent Richard Hall profiles the troubled goalkeeper.

The career of Mattia Perin feels like it should have been much more-straight forward.
