Perin’s agent: “Perin to Roma? An idea.”

Matteo Roggi, the agent of Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin, spoke today today TuttoMercatoWeb regarding the highly rated youngster’s future.

“Perin’s future? It is difficult to determine what will happen in June. Certainly Mattia has been playing for the previous three years at very high levels, despite being only 24 years old. I think at the end of his path of growth that it’s right that the boy is looking at other place. Perhaps a team playing in European cups. A foreign club? Nothing is excluded for now. Perin to Rome? I think he is an idea for Roma. Mattia has the ideal features to play in a place such as the Capital: broad shoulders, calmness. This is an important thing. Roma have, however, already had the opportunity to buy him as part of the operation for Bertolacci, but weren’t interested at the time.”
