Fenway Sports Group, the American owners of Liverpool FC, have put the club up for sale in the last month.

FSG bought Liverpool FC for £300 million in 2010 and during their 12-year ownership, the value of the club has sky-rocketed.

The Athletic reported that two major US banks, Goldan Sachs and Morgan Stanley, had been appointed to help with the process as FSG explore their options.

City insiders believe Liverpool FC could be worth as much as £4.4 billion and £3.5 billion was the valuation put on the club by Forbes.

Todd Boehly recently bought fellow Premier League club, Chelsea FC, for £4.25 billion.

In a statement, FSG maintained they are "fully committed" to the success of the club under Jurgen Klopp, but admit they are open to the idea of further investment.

The statement reads: "There have been a number of recent changes of ownership and rumours of changed in ownership at EPL clubs and inevitably we are asked regularly about Fenway Sports Group's ownership in Liverpool.

"FSG has frequently received expressions of interest from third parties seeking to become shareholders in Liverpool. FSG has said before that under the right terms and conditions we would consider new shareholders if it was in the best interests of Liverpool as a club.

"FSG remains fully committed to the success of Liverpool, both on and off the pitch."

FSG partner, Sam Kennedy, revealed the club had received "a lot of interest" since declaring their stance on selling the club.

He told The Boston Globe, "There has been a lot of interest from numerous potential partners considering investment into the club.

"It is early days in terms of exploring possibilities for possible investments into Liverpool."

This is the first public statement from an FSG individual since the group released their statement earlier this month.

Liverpool fans have mixed feelings about the sale. Paul Machin from The Redmen TV stated his thoughts on Twitter saying fans might have to fight FSG to make sure the club is sold to the right person.

This comes after the recent controversies over the sale of Newcastle United to a Saudi Arabian-backed Consortium.
