Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group have put the Premier League club up for sale.
According to The Athletic, the owners have put together a full presentation for interested parties, adding that the club’s top brass have retained Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley to assist with the process of selling the club. Whilst it is inviting offers, it is unclear the level of interest and whether a deal is likely to be done.
It was gathered that in April last year, FSG had rejected an offer of almost £3billion from the Middle East.
They however said they remain committed to the Premier League club amid reports they are willing to sell it.
The statement read, “There have been a number of recent changes of ownership and rumours of changes in ownership at EPL clubs and inevitably we are asked regularly about Fenway Sports Group’s ownership in Liverpool.
“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.”
Premier League rival Chelsea, were recently taken over by the Todd Boehly-led US consortium for a cost of £4.25billion, a new record in the sport.
