Samir Handanovic scouted Monza players Michele Di Gregorio and Valentin Carboni for Inter Milan during the Brianzoli’s Serie A match against Roma today.

This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews.

Earlier this evening, Monza hosted Roma at the U-Power Stadium. The Giallorossi prevailed 4-1 as the away side in the Serie A clash.

And one person who was present at the match was former Inter captain Handanovic.

The Slovenian has been working with the Nerazzurri by doing some scouting work since retiring from playing at the end of last season.

So naturally, there were a couple players who Handanovic was keeping a particular eye on in today’s match.

And according to FCIN, it was goalkeeper Di Gregorio, and Inter-owned attacking midfielder Carboni who Handanovic was watching.

Handanovic Scouts Di Gregorio & Carboni For Inter

Goalkeeper Di Gregorio is actually an Inter youth academy graduate.

However, the 26-year-old is no longer on the books of the Nerazzurri. He left in a permanent transfer in the summer of 2022.

Moreover, there is no buyback clause in favour of Inter or anything of that nature.

Therefore, if the Nerazzurri are to want to bring Di Gregorio back, they will have to pay the fair market value of the young goalkeeper.

And that wouldn’t be cheap. Di Gregorio has emerged as one of the outstanding young goalkeepers in Serie A since Monza’s promotion to the top flight.

But Inter could well consider him worth the eventual transfer fee.

Di Gregorio is a player whose age means that he could be a potential first-choice keeper for many seasons to come.

And Inter’s current Number One Yann Sommer is already 35.

Therefore, it is little surprise that Handanovic – particularly as a former goalkeeper reportedly set to play a role in Inter’s long-term goalkeeper search – would be observing Di Gregorio.

Meanwhile, young attacking midfielder Carboni is currently at Monza on loan from Inter.

The Argentine is a player whose future the Nerazzurri have full control of. He is only at the Brianzoli on a dry loan without any sort of purchase option.

And Inter reportedly rejected interest from Fiorentina, Brentford, and West Ham United in signing Carboni during the January transfer window.

Carboni did not start for Monza against Roma this evening. But he has been a regular in the starting eleven in recent weeks.

However, the 18-year-old did come off the bench, so Handanovic was able to get a look at him to report back to Inter.
