Zoff rates Genoa keeper Perin as best youngster in country

Italy legend Dino Zoff is a big fan of Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin.

Zoff says Perin should be groomed as the successor of Juventus icon Gigi Buffon with the Azzurri.

"Buffon is the best goalkeeper in Italy, in Europe and also in the world," Zoff told the Corriere dello Sport.

"Andrea Consigli and Antonio Mirante are also very talented, but they are no longer particularly young.

"If I have to choose an heir to Gigi in the Nazionale, I'd pick Perin of Genoa. The future belongs to him."
