The Portuguese ace only joined the Reds over the summer in a £7m move from Sporting Lisbon, but is yet to make an appearance under Brendan Rodgers.

Fellow deadline day arrival Mamdou Sakho has quickly slotted into the first-team alongside Martin Skrtel and Kolo Toure, and with Daniel Agger also set to return, the 20-year-old’s chances of action are slim.

Valencia are keen to offer him a temporary escape route, and are hopeful that Liverpool will be keen to send him out to gain experience.

Los Che are set to lose once centre-back in the shape of Adil Rami this winter, which will leave them short of cover.

Ilori is seen as the ideal man to step in, and could benefit from the experience of compatriot, Ricardo Costa.

The youngster is believed to have a bright future on Merseyside, but is set to spend the majority of this season warming the bench.

Ilori has gained a reputation for being a classy, ball-playing defender, which suits Rodgers’ playing style.

He has also been lauded for his pace, having beaten Sporting’s sprinting record – which was previously held by Cristiano Ronaldo.

Should Liverpool give Tiago Ilori a chance? Or would a loan move be best?
