Monaco ‘are keen on signing Juventus goalkeeper’

Monaco are reportedly keen on signing Juventus goalkeeper Mattia Perin after his proposed transfer to Benfica fell through.

Perin was all set for Benfica until they pulled out of a deal, citing a shoulder problem in his medical.

Aston Villa then held talks with the 26-year-old last week, but the Premier League side ultimately brought in Tom Heaton from Burnley.

Consequently, Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira writes that has left the path clear for Monaco to make their move.

Schira explains a deal could be agreed on the proviso of a season-long loan with a fee and an option to buy next summer.
