Mattia Perin’s agent: We haven’t spoken with Roma

Moreno Roggi, the agent of Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin, commented on the future of his client to Tele Radio Stereo:

“The roles of goalkeepers and defenders were once for Italians, now clubs prefer to focus on foreigners and because of this, Mattia could go abroad. In January he will not move, the club won’t deprive themselves of a key player in Gasperini’s formation. We have not had contacts with Roma. If I have to make a prediction, I’d say that in the case of a sale, it’d be easier if he went abroad, where he’s known and appreciated – but that does not mean he won’t stay in Italy.”
