Juventus place first offer for Perin

With club legend Gigi Buffon officially departing, Juventus have set their sights on securing insurance between the goalposts.

According to Goal.com correspondent Romeo Agresti, the Bianconeri have submitted an official €10 million offer to Genoa for goalkeeper Mattia Perin.

Genoa were originally asking for €20 million but now seem willing to accept less than that. The distance between the clubs is minimal and a deal could be struck.

Juventus have already agreed personal terms with the 25-year-old goalkeeper on a five-year contract worth €2.5 million a season.

Juve are inching closer and look to close the deal for Perin.
