Mattia Perin Completes Move To Juventus

Italian international goalkeeper Mattia Perin has completed his transfer to Serie A champions Juventus.

Perin joins the Old Lady from fellow Italian side Genoa on a four-year contract in a deal that could see Juventus pay up to €15m (£13.1m) for his services.

The 25-year-old spent eight years at Genoa before securing a move away this summer.

He will replace veteran shot stopper Gianlugi Buffon who has joined French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) after ending his 17-year association with Juventus earlier this summer though the club’s chief executive Giuseppe Marotta has previously stated that Wojciech Szczesny will be the club’s new first choice goalkeeper.
