Liverpool set out minority investment timeframe, could have huge implications – journalist

FSG believe they will have secured minority investment for Liverpool by the summer, according to journalist Dave Powell.

Writing in the Liverpool Echo’s QnA about John Henry, the reporter suggested the club are currently optimistic about minority investment, as it is a far less challenging process to complete when compared with a full takeover.

“The process, as Henry said, has identified potential investors,” wrote Powell.

“Selling a minority stake is obviously an easier process that a full sale with a lesser degree of due diligence.

“Will still take months, but sure summer will be seen as a date to get something done.

“As for interested parties, NDAs would be in place but the Liberty Media link, while I’ve not been told that specifically, would make a lot of sense. A partner that has serious funds and expertise to scale a media business.”

Liverpool could have investment secured by the summer

This will be huge for Liverpool, heading into next season.

Jurgen Klopp’s squad is in desperate need of additions, and the manager hopes he can begin the rebuild over the summer.

However, if this isn’t complete ahead of the transfer window opening, this could have severe complications for the Reds’ recruitment team.

Even if it is completed during the window, the Merseyside outfit will have still missed out on precious time they could have used to negotiate with clubs over potential targets.

Therefore, the sooner minority investment can be secured, the better.

This will allow Klopp to see what he has available, and to identify which areas he needs to improve with the funds he has to work with.

He is sure to start with the midfield.
