The Portuguese starlet arrived at Anfield last summer as a highly regarded defensive prospect, but has so far failed to break into the Reds’ first team.

Still, Sunderland have seen some potential in the youngster’s performances in France this season, and could be readying a summer bid to bring Ilori to the Stadium of Light.

The Black Cats look in need of some major strengthening this summer after an awful season, though much will depend on their success in avoiding relegation to the Championship.
