Reports in Spain and Portugal claim Tiago Ilori is a loan target for Valencia when the January transfer window opens

Portuguese newspaper Record has followed up on initial reports in Spain from Super Deporte claiming Liverpool’s Tiago Ilori is a January loan target for Valencia.

The 20-year-old only arrived at Anfield in September but the reports claim the Spanish side will attempt to temporarily sign a player they had tried to get permanently prior to his switch to the Reds.

With Adil Rami soon to leave Valencia the La Liga side will be searching for new defensive options and the former Sporting Lisbon man appears to be high on their list.
