Benitez signs keeper Padelli from Sampdoria
Sampdoria goalkeeper Daniele Padelli will join Liverpool on a six-month loan deal on Wednesday, his agent has confirmed.
The Italy Under-21 goalkeeper is expected to undergo a medical on Wednesday afternoon with the Reds before starting training under Rafael Benitez.
The player's agent Silvano Martina told PA Sport: 'Padelli will travel to Liverpool this afternoon.
'The clubs have agreed on a six-month loan deal and the player is excited at the prospect of playing for Liverpool.'
Padelli, one of Italy's most promising goalkeepers, joined Serie B side Crotone on loan from Sampdoria in the summer with the aim of getting some first-team football under his belt.
However, the 21-year-old has merely served as an understudy to Salvatore Soviero, playing in just one league game, leading Sampdoria to cancel the deal.
