Liga duo go for Liverpool youngster

Granada and Valencia will fight it out for Liverpool youngster Tiago Ilori, according to reports in the British Press.

The Liverpool Echo have revealed this morning that El Grana and Los Che are keen on taking the Portuguese defender on loan until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old, who signed for the Anfield outfit from Sporting Lisbon, has failed to make a first team appearance this term.

As such, Brendan Rodgers’ men will allow the centre-back to leave for more playing time, with the Liga pair said to be heavily interested.

It is claimed that Granada are already in talks with Ilori about a switch, but Valencia may come in with an 11th hour bid of their own before the end of the window.
