Mattia Perin: Wanted by several top clubs, says his agent

Perin is spending the season on loan at Pescara, who were promoted to Serie A last term, and has made the No.1 spot his own, with his performances thought to have drawn the attention of several European heavyweights

The 20-year-old's agent, Matteo Roggi, claims the Gunners are keen on the keeper amid speculation they could bring in cover for Wojciech Szczesny in the summer.

Roggi has also claimed interest from the likes of Barcelona and AC Milan but says the youngster will spend at least next season at Genoa after agreeing a new deal to keep him there until 2017.

The agent also claims any club wanting to prise Perin away from Genoa would have to meet his €20million (£17.4m) price tag.

Roggi told tuttomercatoweb.com of the keeper, capped once for Italy: "There are many clubs interested in him: Arsenal, Barcelona, AC Milan. It has also been said about Juventus, Napoli and Roma.

"Currently, however, there is only one certainty about Mattia's future: he will return to Genoa at the end of his loan and there is a mutual intention for him to spend at least one season in a Genoa shirt.

"Just a month ago we extended his contract until 2017 and Mattia's cost is at least €20 million.

"I am 99 per cent sure he will be Genoa's goalkeeper next season."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
