The former-Sporting Lisbon defender is yet to make an appearance for the Reds in the Premier League, and Brendan Rodgers has confirmed he could leave the club to get more playing time.
As reported by A Bola, Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo: "Ilori's time will come. It will take six months to adapt, and then he'll go out to gain experience."
Liverpool paid €7.5m for the 20-year-old defender despite his limited playing experience in a top division - Ilori had made just 12 appearances for Sporting before his move.
But Rodgers defended his summer signing from accusations that he was over-priced.
"He [Ilori] was not overrated," said Rodgers, stressing that the player needs time to find his feet at Anfield.
His first-team chances have not been helped by the wealth of options available to Rodgers at centre-back. The Liverpool boss has so many to chose from he even fielded a back-four entirely made up of centre-backs against Southampton earlier this season.
Fellow summer recruit Mamadou Sakho, Danish international Daniel Agger, Slovakian star Martin Skrtel and former-Arsenal defender Kolo Toure have all seen extensive playing time already this season.
