Liverpool to get ‘significant funds’ as $10m FSG investment ‘benched’ amid LeBron James surprise

Liverpool to get ‘significant funds’ as $10m FSG investment ‘benched’ amid LeBron James surprise

Liverpool needs a big summer from FSG. The owners are not always the most liberal when it comes to spending, but there is broad agreement that some major investment is needed in the upcoming transfer market, after perhaps the most disappointing season of the Jürgen Klopp era.

There’s some potentially good news on that front, although the spending is just the start. The onus is on Liverpool — and the staff put in place at the club by FSG — to make sure the recruitment is spot on. Even with funds made available, there is very limited margin for error, and a recent $10m call shows exactly what will need to be avoided.

Meanwhile, there’s developments with one-time Liverpool investor LeBron James. Having traded his two per cent stake in the club for a one per cent share of FSG, he has since increased his equity there, all while continuing his career in the NBA. But after exiting the playoffs, a big decision could be on the horizon.

Amid another busy week, here’s what you might have missed from the world of FSG, at Liverpool and beyond.

‘Significant investment’ for Liverpool

There have naturally been concerns about what the Liverpool transfer budget might look like for summer. A major rebuild is needed, but FSG has always operated a mostly self-sustaining model, and the failure to qualify for the Champions League will be a major hit to the revenue streams.

However, The Athletic claims that FSG will nonetheless make ‘significant funds’ available to Klopp this summer. Fans would no doubt rather see a number placed on it, but it’s an encouraging update.
