The 21-year-old Sampdoria player joined Serie B club Crotone on loan in the summer with the understanding he would receive a lot of playing time, but he has played in just one league game. Samp have the right to cancel the loan deal with Crotone and are considering an offer which Martina claims has been made by the Reds.
"Liverpool are interested in Padelli," Martina said to PA Sport. "He is a promising goalkeeper. If he were to join Liverpool in the winter transfer market, it would be on a permanent basis."
