Leeds United have been offered the chance to sign former AC Milan youth product and current Palermo midfielder Davide Di Gennaro.

The Yorkshire giants have been shopping extensively for reinforcements in Italy over the summer, with president Massimo Cellino and director of football Nicola Salerno using their contacts throughout their homeland.

According to Italian outlet Tutto Mercato, Leeds have been offered the chance to make a move for Di Gennaro.

However, Cellino is at present not minded to chase the midfielder, although that could change before the transfer window slams shut.


The attack-minded midfielder started his career in the youth ranks at hometown team AC Milan, with the Rossoneri then choosing to send him out on a series of loans and co-ownership deals.


Di Gennaro has spent time at Bologna, Genoa, Reggina, Livorno, Padova and Modena, while in 2012 he joined Spezia on a permanent deal.

The midfielder then moved on to Palermo last summer, penning a three-year deal with the island team.

Di Gennaro has represented Italy at Under-16, Under-17, Under-18, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level.
