Liverpool news: Investment incoming with ‘good news on the way’ for Jurgen Klopp | Football | Sport

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp could be about to make use of a much-needed cash injection as investment at Anfield is reportedly 'likely' over the summer. Current owners Fenway Sports Group (FSG) began exploring options late last year before confirming that they would not commit to a full sale.

FSG chief John W. Henry killed any notion of the club being handed over completely back in February, but discussions are still thought to be taking place over new investment behind the scenes.

One of those involved is supposedly Liberty Media Corporation which, among other entities, owns Formula 1. Reports suggest that talks between the parties are 'relatively well advanced' and finance journalist Alex Miller claims that 'good news is on the way', with new money tipped to filter through on Merseyside at the end of the season.

New funds becoming available would be a huge boost for Klopp who, one way or another, faces a significant squad rebuild in the summer.

Naby Keita, James Milner, Arthur Melo and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are all set to depart on free transfers, leaving a host of midfield vacancies for Klopp and his backroom team to fill before the start of next campaign. 

Long-serving forward Roberto Firmino is also primed to leave Anfield in the summer as his own deal winds down. With Liverpool up against it in the race for the top four this season, fans are invariably hoping for a statement spending spree in the transfer market.

Despite having gone close to an unprecedented silverware quadruple last season, the Reds are currently eighth in the Premier League, a full 29 points behind table-toppers Arsenal. It remains to be seen whether that hampers their ability to attract big names in the window. 

New investment could prove extremely handy in the chase for Jude Bellingham, with the Borussia Dortmund star expected to set suitors back around £130million. Liverpool are in the mix, and some reports claim that Anfield would be Bellngham's preferred destination, although committing to the move would see the Reds smash their previous transfer record.

Speaking ahead of his side's clash with Arsenal this weekend, Klopp discussed the need for new faces. "[Arsenal made some] good transfers, [they] brought in super important Players but not too many. The difference is whatever we do next year will never be enough from people’s point of view and [reporters'] point of view.

"But yes with smart recruitment we will improve - definitely. That is the plan. And I think this club has a chance to go through this in a classy way. We cannot make 24 changes and say 'here we go'- not even 10 - but it is just that we have to make changes - smart changes - and then we go again."
