Serie A champions Juventus sign Italy international goalkeeper Mattia Perin from Genoa for an upfront fee of £10.5m, three weeks after Gianluigi Buffon left the club.

Juventus have moved to bring in another goalkeeper following the exit of Gianluigi Buffon by landing Mattia Perin from Genoa on a four-year deal.

The Serie A champions have paid an upfront fee of £10.5m for the 25-year-old, who earned his second senior cap for Italy in the 1-1 draw with the Netherlands earlier this week.

Three weeks after legendary keeper Buffon said farewell to supporters, bringing an end to 17 years in Turin, Juve have announced the capture of Perin.

Wojciech Szczesny is expected to step up as number one from next season, with Perin - at Genoa for the past eight years - providing competition from the bench.

Juventus have already signed Douglas Costa from Bayern Munich on a permanent deal this summer and are expected to wrap up the free transfer of Emre Can this weekend.
