Genoa: Perin can leave, Rossi…

Genoa owner Enrico Preziosi admits Mattia Perin can leave ‘if a big opportunity arises’ and hopes to keep Giuseppe Rossi, who ‘makes love with the ball’.

Preziosi’s remarks will surely put Napoli on red alert for Perin and encourage Rossi, who has made just five goalless appearances for Genoa since his free transfer in January, although Coach Davide Ballardini may feel aggrieved after turning the Grifone’s season around.

Perin: 'Genoa must keep Ballardini'

Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin insists Davide Ballardini “simply has to be” the Coach next season. “It shouldn’t even be a question.”

The Grifone are practically safe from the threat of relegation, sitting 10 points clear of the drop zone with five rounds to go.

Ballardini took over from Ivan Juric on November 6 with a contract to the end of the season and turned their campaign around for the third time.

He had already rescued them coming in mid-season in 2010-11 and 2013-14.

Perin: ‘Not just me and Gigio’

Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin says “it’s not just me and Gigio Donnarumma” who are competing to replace Gianluigi Buffon in the Italy squad.

The legendary Juventus goalkeeper is expected to retire at the end of the season, and the battle for his gloves is widely seen as being between the Grifone man and Milan’s 19-year-old.

“There are a lot of young goalkeepers who are having a great season,” Perin pointed out in an interview with Tiki Taka.

‘Perin a guarantee, not a gamble’

Genoa’s general manager has invited Napoli to make an offer for Mattia Perin. “He wouldn’t be a gamble but rather a guarantee.”

Perin has been linked with replacing Pepe Reina as Napoli’s No 1 next season, and Giorgio Perinetti suggested the Partenopei were in pole position for the goalkeeper.

“You have to ask Napoli,” he told Radio Crc.

“Genoa want to keep him as much as possible because he’s a great champion, a player with personality and like a local here.

Race is on to fill Buffon's gloves

Gianluigi Buffon will soon be ready to hand over the Italy gloves, but Richard Hall wonders if it’ll be to Gigio Donnarumma or Mattia Perin?

Back in September, ex-Milan star Demetrio Albertini challenged Gianluigi Donnarumma to match Gigi Buffon’s achievements. “He is definitely ready to replace Buffon, I believe he is a great goalkeeper and a brilliant talent”.  Albertini is not alone in his presumption: Buffon retires, Donnarumma takes his place, one child prodigy to another. It’s simple, no? The belief may be valid, as the Milan youngster’s ability has been proven again and again.

Time for Buffon to go

Gianluigi Buffon has been a loyal and wonderful servant for the Azzurri, writes Ciro Di Brita, but Italy simply must move on now without him.

Gianluigi Buffon was talked out of international retirement by interim boss Luigi Di Biagio, believing a player of his stature shouldn’t have the final image in an Italy jersey be the tears after defeat to Sweden in the World Cup play-offs.

Napoli decide on Perin push

Napoli are prepared to pay over €20m for Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin, according to reports, as he is their first choice.

The Partenopei did not offer Pepe Reina a new contract and he is already in advanced negotiations for a move to Milan as a free agent.

A replacement needs to be found and Perin seems to be the number one candidate, as he is still young, yet brings experience in Serie A.

Meret: 'Buffon deserves Italy gloves'

SPAL and Italy Under-21 goalkeeper Alex Meret has no desire to push Gigi Buffon off the international scene. “He still deserves to be first choice.”

Buffon was expected to hang up his gloves after the 2018 World Cup, but Italy’s failure to qualify seems to have changed his plans and he started last night’s 2-0 friendly defeat to Argentina.

While Gianluigi Donnarumma and Mattia Perin are waiting to take over, Meret has been given the Under-21 role.

‘Perin to Roma? Ask Monchi…’

Genoa sporting director Diego Perinetti doesn’t rule out Mattia Perin joining Roma - “you’d have to ask Monchi…”

The Giallorossi could sell Alisson this summer, with Real Madrid and Liverpool among the clubs thought to be interested.

It has been suggested that Perin would be an ideal replacement, and the Grifone aren’t ruling out a sale.

“I think Monchi has to say he wants him,” Perinetti said on Radio Centro Suono Sport.
