It was been suggested by the New York Post that Henry had launched a "passive sales process", meaning that although he wasn't actively looking to sell up he would accept an offer which met his valuation over the club - just over £1.5bn.

The reports in the New York Post come despite denials in the summer that Henry was interested in a sale.

The source for the NY based company claimed: "It's for sale if he can get the right price".

The report alleged that the American businessman, who also owns the Boston Red Sox, had set an asking price "north of $2billion" for the Anfield club.

However, the club have now released an official statement insisting that there is no truth to the rumours.

Liverpool have slammed a report that claimed the club's principal owner John W. Henry is looking to sell the Premier League club.

Sears to close Grand Island location
Fewer than 90,000 people still worked for Sears Holdings earlier this year, down from 350,000 in decades past. Officials at La Cumbre Plaza could not immediately be reached for comment about the closure.

FSG have been in charge of Liverpool for over eight years, having bought the club from previous owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett after an extended legal battle.

In August, the Daily Mail reported that in late 2017 Sheik Khaled Bin Zayed Al Nehayan, whose family governs Abu Dhabi, and a Chinese partner made an unsuccessful approach to buy Liverpool.

Besides the Red Sox and Liverpool FC, Fenway Sports Group owns 80 percent of regional sports net NESN and 50 percent of NASCAR's Roush Fenway Racing.

It is unclear if the cousin of Manchester City owner Sheik Mansour has cooled his interest after reportedly being rebuffed.

Midhat Kidwai, the managing director of Sheik Khaled's conglomerate of companies, also met Liverpool chairman Tom Werner in NY.
