Liverpool’s summer long chase of Tiago Ilori is over with the Reds having signed the young Portuguese. Though born in London, Ilori has represented Portugal at U18, U19 and U20 level.
The fee is believed to be £7 million and he will be joined at Anfield by fellow defender Mamadou Sakho.
Liverpool have finally reached an agreement with PSG for the permanent signing of the French international centre-back.
Sakho was also at Melwood for a medical and to complete his deal.
Ilori had been on the radar for most of the summer with the reds having bids rejected by his club Sporting earlier in the window.
As for Sakho, it appears that it was either him or Papadopolos from Schalke, but with the Greek struggling for full fitness, Liverpool have moved quickly for the French international Sakho and he should make his reds debut after the international break.
With the double deal totalling £25 million pounds it is yet another sign that FSG are willing to spend when the right targets are available.
