Liverpool end bid for Sporting Lisbon defender Tiago Ilori

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is dropping his pursuit of Sporting Lisbon defender Tiago Ilori.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is dropping his pursuit of Sporting Lisbon defender Tiago Ilori.

The Daily Express says the Reds have been on Ilori's trail for a while, and it is thought they were close to securing a deal after lodging a £3m bid for the Sporting Lisbon player.

However, a move appears to be in jeopardy due to a dispute between club and Ilori's agent.

And with Sporting refusing to negotiate over a fee for Ilori, Rodgers, who has already landed Kolo Toure on a free transfer, may have to look elsewhere.
