“FSG has frequently received expressions of interest from third parties seeking to become shareholders in Liverpool.
“FSG has said before that under the right terms and conditions we would consider new shareholders if it was in the best interests of Liverpool as a club.
“FSG remains fully committed to the success of Liverpool, both on and off the pitch.”
FSG bought Liverpool from controversial American owners George Gillett Jr and Tom Hicks back in October 2010.
They sold an 11 per cent stake worth £655million to investment firm RedBird Capital Partners last year.
RedBird became majority owners of Serie A giants AC Milan back in August.
