Arsenal-linked attacking star opens door for January move

Genoa star Diego Perotti has refused to rule out a January move away from the Italian side amid links with Arsenal.

The Argentine winger has been in decent form in Serie A action so far this term, notching one goal and one assist for the midtable side.

His performances and recent injuries at Arsenal have led to reports that Arsene Wenger is pondering a swoop for the 27-year-old, and Perotti himself has confessed that he could move on this winter:

“In the summer there was a lot of speculation, but I have always been focused on Genoa,” he told Sky Italia (via talkSPORT).

“I do not know what could happen in January.”

Both Bournemouth and Watford reportedly chased the versatile attacker during the summer, but neither were able to lure him to England, even though the Cherries offered £11.2m for his signature.

Perotti only signed for Genoa from Sevilla in 2014 following a brief loan spell back in his homeland with Boca Juniors.

He has been capped twice at senior international level and made his debut in 2009, coming on for Lionel Messi against Spain.
