Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp will be busy this summer with the squad undergoing an over-haul as the German tries to establish his authority on the squad next season.

Though there are many weak links in this Liverpool line-up, the defense has been the biggest issue by far in this season.

The Anfield club’s first choice goal-keeper Simon Mignolet has no kept 3 clean sheets in the last 5 games and has hit some good form going into the business end of the season but the number of mistakes he has made over the season will surely make Klopp think about a replacement.

This has seen the club linked with a number of goal keepers from across Europe including Barcelona’s Ter-Stegen and Genoa’s Mattia Perin for a move this summer.

Italian website Calciomercato revealed recently that the Reds are stepping up their chase for the latter as a replacement for the Belgian in the current squad.

The 23-year old has been superb for the Serie A club this season and has shown what he is capable of throughout the season.

He has kept 6 clean sheets in 23 appearances for the Italian side this season and is one of the most highly rated shot-stoppers in Europe at the moment.

He has played at the every International age level and is well experienced beyond his age. He has already made 122 senior appearances in the Italian league and will surely bolster the defense of any team he walks into.

In the January transfer window, rumors suggested that London based franchise West Ham United came close to securing his signing but the deal fell through because of financial matters.

But this summer, Perin is once again set to be the subject a transfer battle between two English giants.

Manchester United are also scouting the shot-stopper as a replacement for current goal-keeper David de Gea who might leave the club to PSG or Real Madrid at the end of the season.

However, Matteo Roggi, the player’s agent who revealed the Red’s interest in his client a couple of years ago has recently encouraged the various clubs scouting for his client to make a big offer for a move this summer.

talkSPORT revealed that the agent has revealed that the player is ready for a move and any potential suitor will have to offer big money to Genoa if they want to make the transfer happen this summer.

Do you think Mattia Perin will be able to prove himself in the Premier League?
