(Reuters) - Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin arrived at Juventus to undergo a medical on Friday ahead of an expected transfer to the Serie A champions.
Juventus, who bid farewell to goalie Gianluigi Buffon at the end of the last campaign after 17 seasons as the club, are set to pay up an initial fee of around 12 million euros 10.54 million pounds) to sign Perin, though that figure could rise to 15 million euros with add-ons.
The 25-year-old captained Genoa last season as the club finished 12th.
“Mattia Perin has arrived at #JMedical!,” Juventus posted on their official Twitter account along with a video of Perin’s arrival.
