Report: Liverpool owners slap £1bn price tag on club amid Amanda Staveley interest

​Liverpool's owners reportedly place a £1bn price tag on the club amid takeover interest from British investor Amanda Staveley.

Liverpool's owners have reportedly slapped a £1bn price tag on the club after preliminary buyout talks with investor Amanda Staveley.

The British businesswoman, who has links to billionaires in the Middle East, was present for the Reds' recent away match against Newcastle United in the Premier League.

Staveley runs PCP Capital Partners, a fund with global assets of more than £28bn, and is believed to have made initial soundings about Liverpool's availability on Sunday.

According to The Mirror, however, current Reds owners Fenway Sports - who bought the club seven years ago for £300m - are looking for a major return on their investment and will only sell for the right price.

Staveley reportedly made advances towards Liverpool in 2007 with Dubai-based investors regarding a takeover bid, and again last year alongside Chinese company Everbright Limited, but nothing materialised on either occasion.
