The Reds are expected to be sold for a price in the region of £4billion following Todd Boehly’s £4.25bn takeover of Chelsea last year.

And Qatari journalist Mohammed Saeed Alkaabi has now claimed it is a consortium from the 2022 World Cup host country which is leading the way in the pursuit of Liverpool.

As reported by The Anfield Talk, he said: “Qatar are giving priority to the acquisition of Liverpool Football Club and are seriously interested but the deal is not complete at this present moment.

“We will see in the next few days.”

The offer is reportedly set to come from a private company rather than the Qatari state.

However, the organisation is understood to have close ties with the country’s ruling family.

American multi-national FSG purchased Liverpool for £300million back in 2010 and have gone on to enjoy success at the club – namely through winning the Champions League in 2019 and Premier League in 2020.

In a remarkable increase in price, Forbes valued the club at £3.89bn back in May of last year.

It is expected that Fenway will hold out for an offer of at least £4bn.

The inability to form a European Super League is believed to be one of the reasons behind their decision to sell.

Liverpool were one of 12 clubs that signed up to the breakaway league in April 2021.

But after nationwide protests from English fans, all six Premier League clubs involved decided to pull out.
