Liverpool have agreed a fee with Sporting Lisbon for defender Tiago Ilori, according to reports.

The 20-year-old is believed to be on his way to Anfield along with his father to discuss personal terms and undergo a medical.

Ilori was also a summer target for Monaco and Valencia, but it now appears that Brendan Rodgers has won the race to land his signature for a fee reportedly in the region of £8m.

Ilori has represented Portugal at U18, U19 and U20 level, although he has hinted that he would like to play for England having been born in London.
