Tiago Ilori could still return to Liverpool

Published 3 Comments

Liverpool outcast Tiago Ilori could still return to the club this summer after enduring a torrid time on loan at Aston Villa. 

As reported by the Liverpool Echo, the young centre-back's fate lies in the hands of new Villa manager Remi Garde. Since signing for the club on a season-long loan deal, Ilori still hasn't featured for the Villa Park outfit.

The same report claims that Villa can sign Ilori for anything between £6 million and £9m, but it's far from certain as to whether they will secure the player's services for the long term.

As it stands, it's looking increasingly likely that he will return to Merseyside at the end of the season, but the arrival of Garde could yet change things for the player. 

The Liverpool Echo claim that the player was surplus to requirements under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers at Anfield, so it's far from certain as to whether new Reds chief Jurgen Klopp would be willing to offer him an opportunity to express himself.

Klopp focus 

Ultimately, though, the future of Ilori could take a number of twists and turns throughout the course of the season. 


Klopp's immediate focus will no doubt be on the current crop of players he has at his disposal. After centre-back Mamadou Sakho picked up a long-term injury, the revered coach will be hoping that the likes of Dejan Lovren, Martin Skrtel and Co. step up sooner rather than later.
