A new candidate has emerged as a prospective buyer of Liverpool from Fenway Sports Group, according to a fresh report.

Last month, the football and financial world were put on alert as reports emerged that FSG had put Liverpool up for sale, with a complete sales presentation having been produced for prospective buyers.

Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley had also reportedly been retained to assist with the sales process.

FSG, who bought the club in a £300million deal in 2010, subsequently released a statement admitting they would “consider new shareholders” if they were in the “best interests of Liverpool as a club.” The Americans added however that they were “fully committed to the success of Liverpool, both on and off the pitch.”

There has since been uncertainty over whether the Premier League side would be completely taken over or merely subject to partial sale.

Several prospective buyers have been tipped to bid for the Merseyside team, should the Merseyside club be sold.

American bidder

Sporting News has claimed that an unnamed American consortium is interested in buying the Premier League club.

However, they would have to compete with a group of German investors and a surprise Saudi-Qatari consortium that is also reportedly keen to bid on the Premier League giants.

The Saudi-Qatari interest has caused a stir, with both the two gulf states having reportedly joined forces to table a bid, to avoid becoming embroiled in a bidding war.

While the joint bid comes will come from private investors from the respective nations, both are said to have “strong links to their respective states”. The Saudi-Qatari bid is reported to be worth £3.2billion for the Reds.

However, according to Sporting News, the German investors are ahead of their Middle Eastern competitor in the process of tabling a bid.
