STORY FROM JOHN HENRY-OWNED SOURCE SUGGESTS LIVERPOOL FANS COULD SOON BE TREATED TO SIGNINGS

Liverpool fans have read plenty of takeover rumours after The Athletic claimed that John Henry and Mike Gordon wanted to sell the Reds.

 

The resignations of Julian Ward and Ian Graham have caused more drama at Anfield, although a fresh story straight from The Boston Globe – owned by Henry – suggests Fenway Sports Group (FSG) have new signings in mind.

 

WHAT’S THE STORY?

Well, The Boston Globe believe a partial sale of Liverpool is now more likely, with FSG keen for external investment to arrive in order to improve “player acquisition” opportunities.

 

 

It is also said that discussions are taking place with a number of parties to obtain such investment.

 

Clearly, there is plenty of interest in a stake at Liverpool, and regardless of who arrives at Anfield, it is now clear that FSG are doing this mainly in order to raise transfer funds and bolster Jürgen Klopp’s squad.

 

In our view, the line about “player acquisition” should certainly excite Liverpool fans.

 

As things stand, the Reds are struggling to compete with the likes of Manchester City and Arsenal in the market, as well as Newcastle.

 

Therefore, it makes sense for FSG to seek a financial boost from outside of Liverpool.

 

LIVERPOOL TAKEOVER COULD STILL HAPPEN

One suggestion in The Boston Globe is that any investors who do purchase a stake in Liverpool could end up taking the reins completely later on down the line.

 

In our view, that would be the best possible outcome for Liverpool, depending on who arrives.

 

This process would allow any new arrivals the chance to settle in and see how things work at Anfield, as opposed to them storming in, immediately taking full control and potentially rocking the ship.

 

Of course, one huge issue is that Manchester United are also currently up for sale, so be sure to keep an eye on this situation to see who ends up becoming involved at Liverpool.
