Liverpool's owner Fenway Sports Group (FSG) is not in active negotiations for a sale or partial investment from a Chinese group, according to Bloomberg.

It has been claimed that China Everbright Group and PCP Capital Partners are working on a deal to take a substantial shareholding in the Reds, with the offer on the table valuing Liverpool at the £800m mark.

But an anonymous source has claimed that FSG has not received any offer for a shareholding in Liverpool, with no active negotiations ongoing.

Liverpool are looking to sell naming rights to their new main stand at Anfield and the club's chairman Tom Werner has also admitted a small stake sale to the right investor could be considered.

FSG took control of Liverpool for around £300m in October 2010.


The American group has come in for some criticism from fans for failing to drive Liverpool towards the top end of the Premier League table.

However, the appointment of former Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp as the club's manager last October has focused attention to matters on the pitch.

The Reds have raised substantial funds through selling players this summer, notably receiving £4m for Jerome Sinclair, £15m for Jordon Ibe, £5m for Martin Skrtel, £13m for Joe Allen, £6m for Brad Smith and £27m for Christian Benteke.

In total, Liverpool have made a profit of over £10m on their summer transfer dealings so far.
