Tiago Ilori in talks with Deportivo La Coruna over a summer transfer


Liverpool defender Tiago Ilori has been linked with a move away from Anfield this summer.

The highly talented Portuguese defender has failed to make his mark since joining the Reds under Brendan Rodgers from Liga Sagres.

According to a report from Football Insider, Liverpool are in advanced talks with La Liga outfit Deportivo La Coruna in order to secure a permanent summer transfer away from Merseyside.

The talented centre back spent some time on loan in La Liga earlier and impressed with Granada. Later he was loaned out to Bordeaux and Aston Villa as well.

The former Sporting player will now look to end his Liverpool nightmare and head to Deportivo where he plans to kick-start his stagnating career.

When Ilori joined Liverpool in 2013, he was highly rated within the game and had attracted a lot of attention especially due to his remarkable pace as a defender.

Although Liverpool are looking to offload the likes of Toure and Skrtel this summer, the Reds still have to develop the likes of Joe Gomez and with Matip coming in, it is highly unlikely that Ilori will get a chance to revive his Liverpool career.

A move away is best for all parties involved.
