Liverpool Step Up Interest In £12m ‘Next Buffon’ – reports

Liverpool are set to step up their interest in Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin.

Perin’s agent recently revealed that the Anfield club have been in contact with him over a possible bid.

He also said at the time that Perin is likely to move abroad in the future, handing Liverpool a further boost.

However, Sky Italia are now reporting that the Reds have stepped their interest in signing him up further, ahead of a possible move in January.

Brad Jones has played the last few games for the Merseyside team, but there are few doubts that this is a temporary solution for Liverpool.

Perin has kept an exceptional six clean sheets in 14 games for Genoa this season, contributing to his side’s good form in Serie A.

He has also been favourably compared to Juventus star Gianluca Buffon, comfortably one of the best goalkeepers of the last 20 years, showing the talent that he possesses.

Perin is also valued at around £12 million.
