Fenway Sport’s Group’s (FSG) decision to sell Liverpool could have ramifications for Jurgen Klopp in the transfer market with the timeline for the sale unclear. Any deal is unlikely to be done before January and the current American owners may decide against pumping more money into the club as they look to move on to other projects.
It was revealed yesterday that Liverpool had been put up for sale by FSG, who have controlled the club since October 2010 after purchasing from George Gillett and Tom Hicks. The company, principally owned by John W. Henry, have overseen the Reds’ most successful period in over 30 years.
FSG have considered bids for the club before but no offer if came close to convincing them to sell up. However, they are now encouraging interested parties to come forward as they look to move on to other business away from Merseyside.
The group have invested great sums off the pitch, helping to redevelop Anfield to massively boost capacity. Around £190million has been spent to upgrade the Main Stand and Anfield Road Stand to allow 61,000 into the ground by the time the latter is completed.

It 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.”
