Liverpool's £7m outcast in talks over January exit

Published Add your comment

Liverpool defender Tiago Llori looks set to exit the club on a temporary basis during the current transfer window.

According to the Daily Mail, Llori is in talks with Granada over a loan switch to to the La Liga outfit. The same reports further suggest that fellow Spanish side Valencia are also keen on the player's signature.

20-year-old Llori only joined Liverpool from Sporting Lisbon this summer for a reported fee of £7 million yet his impact at Anfield to date has been minimal.

While he was perhaps not expected to feature on a consistent basis, the Portugal U21 international is yet to make a first-team experience for Brendan Rodgers' side, as Liverpool have preferred the likes of Martin Skrtel, Kolo Toure and Mamadou Sahko.

Liverpool, who have largely performed above all reasonable expectation so far this season and currently occupy fourth position in the Premier League table, achieved a thrilling 5-3 victory over Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

While the Merseyside outfit have experienced their fair share of injury problems of late, they appear particularly well-stocked in the defensive department and is difficult to imagine that allowing Llori to depart Anfield at this stage of the season would prove particularly problematic.

Indeed, with his total lack of opportunity to prove himself at Liverpool, a loan move could be massively beneficial.
