Liverpool chase Sporting star Ilori

Liverpool chase Sporting star Ilori

Liverpool are weighing up a possibility of securing the services of the highly-rated Sporting Lisbon defender Tiago Ilori.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has instructed his scouts to watch the 20-year-old in action and was to such an extent impressed with the reports he would like to land the player in summer. Rodgers considers Ilori to be a perfect long-term replacement to legendaryJamie Carragher, who retires at the end of the season.

However the price of the defender has sky-rocketed since the Rodgers got acquainted with his scouts’ report, because the talented player broke into Sporting first team and established himself as an important first member of the first squad.

Valencia have also made an enquiry as regards the availability of Ilori, however Liverpool are believed to be in the driving seat to sign the player as they have strong relationship with the player.
