Arab journalist Mohammed Al-Kaabi claims Qatar is targeting Liverpool to enter English football.
John W. Henry’s Fenway Sports Group bought Liverpool in 2010. Jurgen Klopp led the Reds to every major trophy under their ownership.
FSG may sell the Merseyside club after 13 years. They listed the Premier League titans in November.
Liverpool has been linked to several acquisition bids, including Middle Eastern organisations. The Daily Telegraph said that the club is auctioned, with formal bids due next month.
Qatar Sports Investments in Doha is interested in the Reds, Bloomberg reported earlier this month. QSI, which owns Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), may buy Liverpool and other English clubs.
Qatar has prioritised buying Merseyside over other English clubs. The source claims they want to buy the club.
According to the report, FSG has yet to agree to sell Liverpool. However, a sale update is likely soon.
QSI may spearhead Qatar’s Premier League club purchasing bid. The organisation, directed by chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi, is a subsidiary of the government-run Qatar Investment Authority.
Liverpool’s success under FSG has disappointed fans due to the owners’ transfer market hesitation. Thus, fans will prefer a QSI buy.
Liverpool’s season is bad.
FSG’s failure to sign a top midfielder last summer has been heavily criticised this season. Many think the Reds should rebuild their midfield.
Klopp’s team is seventh in the Premier League with 28 points after 18 matches. The club has struggled in midfield due to injuries to Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota.
Fans want FSG to sign a great midfielder during the winter transfer window. Will owners listen?
