A fresh Liverpool takeover update has now emerged involving Qatar Sports Investments, according to The Athletic.
As per the report, Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has been told by Qatar’s emir, Tamim bin Hamad al Thani, that he would like to make a move for a team in the Premier League.
Despite this, it is also claimed there is no intention in the short-to-medium term to step away from PSG.
The Athletic subsequently report social media speculation surrounding a Qatari takeover of Liverpool is simply just speculation. As it stands, QSI are not actively pursuing the club.
Consequently, Tottenham Hotspur are now the most likely suitors for Al-Khelaifi.
Qatar don’t appear to be a likely buyer of Liverpool
Despite various rumours circulating, it now appears a Qatari takeover of the Reds is a lot further away than previously reported.
This will come as a relief to many opposing state ownership, due to Qatar’s questionable human rights record.
The people of Merseyside have largely expressed their dismay at such a proposition, so possible investment into the club would likely cause strong resistance and protest.
However, Fenway Sports Group needed to find potential investors as soon as possible.
The Reds are in an extremely poor situation this season, and an overhaul of certain parts of the squad is definitely needed going forward.
With a lack of funds for this, FSG need to secure that cash injection to back Jurgen Klopp in the transfer market.
