Injury to Alisson in the week meant Adrian started on Sunday night and he made the worst possible start by gifting Ollie Watkins the opener inside four minutes.
The Spaniard would ship six more goals as Villa ran out 7-2 winners over the Premier League champions.
Alisson could be out for up to six weeks and The Independent report Liverpool have asked about Gazzaniga's availability, hours before the transfer deadline.
Gazzaniga hasn't played for Spurs so far this season with captain Hugo Lloris established number one.
Summer arrival Joe Hart has been preferred for the club's Europa League campaign meaning the Argentine is firmly third choice.
Despite Adrian's performance at Villa Park, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was quick to point out the defence let him down.
"Not only because of tonight, it's now easy and people are like this - I'm not sure if journalists are like this as well - but now people will go for Adrian and stuff like this," he stated per Metro.
"Yes, the first goal was not cool, of course. But apart from that, I don't think he had anything to do with all the other goals pretty much.
"We didn't help him tonight, let me say it like this, or we even did the opposite. He's a really good goalie who played 11 [Premier League] games for us last year and I think we won pretty much all of them.
"It's all fine. Our goalie was not the problem. Only around the first goal. And the reaction for that first goal was not his problem, that was then our problem. We have to do that better, we can do that better."
The hat-trick. :tophat:

When asked about the extent of Alisson's injury, Klopp replied: "We don't know exactly with this situation. It could have been worse with the injury, that's for sure.
"We were slightly lucky but it's not like he can play against Everton.
"I don't want to put a timeframe on it... but four weeks is possible, six weeks more likely.
"But I don't know, we have to further assess this thing and that's how it is."
Adrian took to Twitter following the game and simply put: "A day to forget, but we'll be back stronger #YWNA."
