Liverpool have confirmed the capture of young Italian goalkeeper Daniele Padelli.
The Sampdoria shot-stopper has moved to Anfield on loan until the end of the season, when The Reds will have the option to make the deal permanent.
Padelli had been on loan with Serie B side Crotone during the first half of the season but will now make the step-up to the Premiership after sealing his move to Merseyside.
The arrival of the 21-year-old is likely to spell the end of Jerzy Dudek's time at Anfield, and Reds boss Rafa Benitez is delighted to have secured the signature of the talented keeper.
"He's a good young goalkeeper who has been selected for his national side," Benitez told the club's official website.
"Our scouting department are working really hard to bring good young players to the club and I'm delighted we have been able to sign Padelli."
The transfer is still subject to international clearance.
