It seems out goalkeeping depth is getting a little deeper.

On Monday, Inter Milan said it had signed former Italian youth national and Torino goalkeeper Daniele Padelli to the team. Padelli did not sign a contract extension with Torino.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but the team did get Padelli on a free transfer. According to Reuters UK, Padelli signed a two-year deal with the Nerazzurri.

“Welcome to Milan, Daniele! We wish you all the best on your adventure with the Nerazzurri.”

Padelli was with Udinese Calcio since going there on loan from Sampdoria in 2011. He joined Torino in 2013. Up until last year, Padelli was Torino’s goalkeeper of choice until being ousted by England international Joe Hart. Hart came to Torino on loan from Manchester City. Hart returned to Manchester and is rumored to be looking at Manchester United and Newcastle United.

Padelli also played with Crotone, Liverpool, Pisa, Avellino, Udinese and Bari.

There’s the good …

And, there’s the bad …

Padelli may be a backup to Samir Handanovic, but the Nerazzurri seem to have a full accompaniment of goalkeepers with Francesco Bari returning from a loan spell with Frosinone, Raffale Di Gennaro coming back from his loan stint at Ternana and Romanian Andrei Radu who moved up to the first team last year after playing for Inter’s U19 squad since 2014.

It’s likely that the latter three will go out on loan unless Luciano Spalletti decides to keep three keepers on the roster. In that case, Radu may stay with the first team while Di Gennaro and Bari will go back out on loan.
