Liverpool takeover talks are ongoing – and the Reds could have new owners in the “near future”.

US-based Fenway Sports Group have owned the club since the start of the 2010/11 season when the club was on the verge of bankruptcy. Back then, the Reds’ creditors asked the High Court to allow the sale of the club, overruling the wishes of previous owners, Hicks and Gillett.

Now, significant Qatari investment could be coming to Merseyside, with FSG selling up. It’s thought that the sale of Chelsea to American businessman Todd Boehly was one of the main reasons that owner John W. Henry has decided to float the sale of the Reds.

Now, the Express (opens in new tab) are stating that the deal could be done in the “near future” – and that one of the potential options is that the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) become minority shareholders, with FSG remaining on board at Liverpool. Discussions are underway according to the Daily Mail (opens in new tab).
