Liverpool are set to make a move for Sporting Lisbon defender Tiago Ilori at the end of the season as they look to add to the back line
A new centre back is a priority for boss Brendan Rodgers this summer as he looks to replace the retiring Jamie Carragher, although at 20-years-old Ilori is seen as more of one for the future rather than an immediate replacement.
Spanish side Valencia are also thought to be keen on the player who has played for Portugal at Under-20 level even though he was actually born in London.
The Reds have been linked with a host of centre backs, that is likely to continue right through the summer, although there is apparently little truth to the rumours that they are to move for Lyon's Croatian defender Dejan Lovren.
