Michele Di Gregorio turns down Liverpool move

Italian shot-stopper Michele Di Gregorio has turned down the opportunity to join English giants Liverpool.

According to a report from TuttoSport, Liverpool are looking to strengthen the goalkeeping position ahead of next season and Michele Di Gregorio is one of the names on their shortlist. But, they have suffered a blow as the Monza shot-stopper doesn’t seem interested in a move to Anfield.

Di Gregorio was a part of the Inter Milan youth setup, he came up the ranks and got promoted to their first team in the summer of 2018. Post that, he had multiple loan spells away from the club but couldn’t break into their first team and ended up joining Monza in the summer of 2020.

While it was an initial two-year-long loan deal, the move was made permanent in the summer of 2022. The 26-year-old has made quite a name for himself with his performances over the years. Last season, the Italian goalkeeper featured in 33 Serie A games and he kept 14 clean sheets.

Liverpool keen on Michele Di Gregorio’s services

He was one of the standout stars for Monza and his impressive work has resulted in a lot of interest from across Europe. Liverpool are one of the clubs that have been keeping a close eye on him and his growth has attracted their attention.

Caoimhin Kelleher is expected to leave the Reds in the upcoming transfer window and they are working hard to find an ideal replacement. While people at the club feel the Monza keeper could be a great acquisition, he has no intentions of joining them.

Di Gregorio doesn’t want to join the Reds

The Merseyside club knocked on the player’s door with an attractive offer around 20 days back but he has turned down the opportunity to make the move to Anfield. He seems focused on a move to Italian giants Juventus who are in talks with Monza to complete a potential transfer.

The Old Lady are expected to meet the player’s agent soon to sort out important contract details. With Wojciech Szczęsny already 34 and his deal running out in the summer of 2025, the Turin-based club have started to plan for life without the Polish international and Di Gregorio seems to be the answer to their problems.
