Daniele Padelli (born 25 October 1985 in Lecco) is an Italian goalkeeper who currently plays for Torino.


He also played on loan for Pizzighettone in their 2005–06 Serie C1 campaign, and was Crotone's backup keeper in the first half of the 2006–07 season.

On 12 January 2007, Liverpoolfc.tv announced the news that Padelli would be signing on loan until the end of the season with a view to a permanent deal. On the completion of the deal Liverpool manager Rafael Benítez said, "He's a good young goalkeeper who has been selected for his national side. Padelli will give us a good option for the future. The fact he is once again with the under-21s for his national side tells you that we are signing a very good player."[1]

He made his debut, and only appearance, for the club on 13 May 2007 against Charlton Athletic F.C. in the last league game of the 2006–07 season. Subsequently he became the first Italian to ever play for the club.[2] However, his poor performance saw him concede two goals in a disappointing draw for the Reds.[3] His loan period concluded on Friday 8 June 2007 and he returned to Sampdoria.[4]

He spent the 2007–08 season on loan to Pisa of Serie B, but only made seven appearances. He played for Avellino in 2008–09.[5] On 2 July 2009 UC Sampdorias 24 year old goalkeeper has joined Bari on loan, where he had the chance to rejoin his former coach Giampiero Ventura, and appear a second-choice keeper behind team captain and long-term club servant Jean-François Gillet.[6]


On 1 July 2013 Padelli was signed by Torino on a free transfer from Udinese.[citation needed] He subsequently became first choice goalkeeper for the club after the suspension of Jean-François Gillet and made his debut for the club on 26 August 2013 in a 2–0 victory over Sassuolo.[7]


An U-20 international in the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship, he earned his first U-21 cap against Luxembourg U-21, on 12 December 2006, replacing Gianluca Curci on 62 minutes. He also played in 2005–06 and 2006–07 Four Nations Tournament (5 matches), for U-20 team, the feeder team of U-21. He was an overage player in 2006–07 edition.

In the World Youth Cup he was the backup of Emiliano Viviano.
