Born in London to an English father of Nigerian descent and a Portuguese mother, Ilori joined Sporting Clube de Portugal's youth ranks in the 2006 summer as a striker, signing from Imortal DC. For the 2007–08 season the 14-year-old was loaned to Lisbon neighbours G.D. Estoril Praia, returning for three more years and already reconverted as a stopper.
On 6 November 2011 Ilori made his official debut for the Lions' first team, playing the full 90 minutes in a 3–1 Primeira Liga home win against U.D. Leiria. On 14 December he played his first game in the UEFA Europa League, starting in a 0–2 group stage loss to S.S. Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico as his team had already secured the first place in its group.
In only his fourth official appearance for Sporting, on 16 February 2013 at Gil Vicente FC, Ilori again played the entire match, and helped to a 3–2 success by scoring his team's second goal in the sixth minute.
On 2 September 2013, Ilori was signed by Liverpool for an undisclosed fee, reported to be around £7 million. It was also announced that The Football Association were in talks with the player for him to switch nationality and represent England internationally.
On 5 January 2014, Ilori was named on his new team's bench for the first time, in an FA Cup match against Oldham Athletic. Fifteen days later he was loaned to Granada CF in La Liga, until the end of the campaign. On 7 February he made his debut for the Andalusians, in a 0–1 away loss to RCD Espanyol; in the following round he also started, and assisted Piti for the game's only goal at home against Real Betis.
