Perin ready for Benfica move

Juventus goalkeeper Mattia Perin will complete the €15m move to Benfica over the next few days, according to multiple reports.

The former Genoa shot-stopper rarely managed to get playing time in Turin and would receive even less attention after the return of Gianluigi Buffon.

He had wanted to remain in Italy, but has reportedly agreed to a €15m transfer to Portuguese club Benfica.

A medical and contract signing are expected over the next few days, with Juve giving the all-clear.

Perin edges closer to Benfica

Juventus goalkeeper Mattia Perin is increasingly close to a Benfica move for approximately €15m, claim Sky Sport Italia.

The shot-stopper is still only 26 and had hoped to climb the ranks at Juve following his €12m transfer last summer.

However, with only nine competitive appearances last season and Gigi Buffon returning as understudy to Wojciech Szczesny, it’s evident the former Genoa man has to leave.

Radu loaned back to Genoa

Inter have officially signed Ionut Radu but loaned the goalkeeper back to Genoa for the season.

He also impressed for Romania during their run to the European Under-21 Championship semi-finals.
