FSG are on the brink of agreeing to sell a 10% stake in their company for around a cool £540m to RedBird Capital.

The Reds are looking to finish inside the top four this season after what has been a difficult year and, of course, not doing so would mean the club misses out both on the competition next season and the financial boosts that come with it.

Indeed, that’s never ideal but particularly not after a season that has seen matchday revenue obviously plummet and so it perhaps makes sense to hear FSG are looking at ways to raise cash.

As per the Mirror, then, that is what they appear to be doing with RedBird Capital looking to buy a 10% stake in the company with them recently investing in Ligue 2 side Toulouse and evidently looking to further their involvement in football and sports business.

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT

The report doesn’t reveal how much, if any, of this cash will help the Reds in the summer window but it sounds as though it’s going to be a good cash injection nevertheless.

FSG obviously own more than just Liverpool at the momemt so they have several interests to take care of but the Reds are the one we care about most.

This summer window is an important one, let’s hope the Reds can make a splash in it.
