Despite Yann Sommer’s brilliant performances, Inter has begun to plan for the future in the goalkeeping department.

One name that has consistently been mentioned alongside Inter for the future is Monza’s Michele Di Gregorio. This comes according to Italian outlet, La Gazzetta dello Sport, who today report that Inter has “not stopped following” the Italian goalkeeper.

Di Gregorio was born in Milan and spent his youth career in the Inter Academy, winning the Primavera Scudetto, the Primavera Coppa Italia and was a Supercoppa Italiana winner with the U17 squad. Following successful seasons with the youth teams, Di Gregorio began a series of loan spells.

First, he joined Serie C side Renate on loan for the 2017-18 season. There, he made 38 appearances, keeping 14 clean sheets and conceding 36 goals. Next, the goalkeeper joined Serie C side Novara, making 32 appearances, keeping 12 clean sheets and conceding 28 goals. Then, he moved to Serie B and joined Pordenone. Finally, Di Gregorio landed in Serie B the following year again, but this time with Monza. Following his year-long spell, he was re-loaned to Monza but this time with the option to buy. After helping Monza secure promotion to Serie A, the club triggered his option to buy and Di Gregorio became a permanent Monza player in a deal worth €4.1M.

Since then, Michele Di Gregorio has been one of Serie A’s standout young goalkeepers and has impressed top clubs across Europe. According to Gazzetta, Monza now values the 26-year-old at €18-20M. Due to good relations with Monza and a percentage of a future sale inserted into the permanent option to buy in the loan deal, Inter could use this to lower the price of a potential deal in the future.

The article claims that Inter is not the only club attentive to Di Gregorio’s situation, as Juventus will also be looking for a long-term goalkeeper in the future.
