A full sales presentation has been produced for interested parties.
FSG has looked at opportunities in the past but decided against moving forward with them. It is unclear whether or not a deal will eventually be done, but FSG is inviting offers.
Investment banking giants Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley have reportedly been recruited to help with the process.
As of May 2022, Forbes valued Liverpool at $4.45billion (£3.89bn) – but with Chelsea having been sold to LA Dodgers’ owner Todd Boehly for £4.25bn earlier this year, the Merseyside giants would likely demand a matching price.
In a statement given to the Athletic, FSG said that ‘under the right terms and conditions’ they would be open to selling the club.
‘FSG has frequently received expressions of interest from third parties seeking to become shareholders in Liverpool,’ FSG wrote.
‘FSG has said before that under the right terms and conditions we would consider new shareholders if it was in the best interests of Liverpool as a club.’
FSG have overseen an incredible amount of success at Liverpool, particularly since the hiring of manager Jurgen Klopp in 2015.
The German coach delivered a Premier League title as well as the Champions League, the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup.
FSG, who also own the baseball franchise Boston Red Sox, television network NESN, 50 per cent of Roush Fenway Racing and Fenway Sports Management, is led by John W Henry.
In 2021 FSG sold an 11 per cent stake in the company for $750m (£655m) to RedBird Capital Partners – a move which saw them reinvest that money to take a controlling stake in NHL ice hockey team Pittsburgh Penguins.
