Aston Villa boss Dean Smith is said to be keen to snap up Mattia Perin from Juventus.

Aston Villa fans have had a mixed response to the rumours that they could move for Mattia Perin.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Villa are in discussions with Juventus over signing Perin.

The claret and blues are known to want a goalkeeper, and the Italian could now have emerged as an option.

Perin would be a relatively high profile addition for Villa, but his addition would not be unanimously popular.

While some Villa fans are very keen for Perin to be snapped up, others are more cautious about the transfer.

Villa already have Jed Steer and Lovre Kalinic at the club, who are battling to be number one, but do seem to feel that they can upgrade in goal.

Perin has experience of playing at the very highest level, but his injury record is of some concern.

Villa have been extremely busy already this summer, and Perin would be another eye catching addition for Dean Smith’s side, if he did arrive.
