Liverpool fans want Jake Paul to buy the club from FSG
Liverpool fans have joked they want YouTuber-turned-boxer and passionate Reds fan Jake Paul to buy the club from Fenway Sports Group.
It was revealed on Monday that FSG had put together a full sales presentation and shown it to potential suitors.
A statement by FSG reads: “There have been a number of recent changes of ownership and rumours of changes 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."
The American company have been in charge since October 2010 and under their ownership, Liverpool have hired Jurgen Klopp.
It's seen Liverpool win their first Premier League title in addition to the Champions League, Carabao Cup and FA Cup.
The Reds are said to be worth £3.5 billion, meaning a 'state ownership' is on the topic of discussion.
Some have decided to turn to a more unorthodox source.
On Twitter, a number of Liverpool supporters have been asking Paul to put together a team to purchase the Merseyside outfit in the future.
Paul became a Liverpool fan last year, regularly tweeting his opinions of games as well as his love for Mohamed Salah.
The 25-year-old is said to be worth an estimated $38 million, far below Liverpool or any elite football club's valuation.
Nothing is stopping him from putting together a consortium, something social media users were quick to remind him of.
One person commented: "Jake please buy Liverpool."
A second said: "I have a feeling Jake might want to get involved."
Someone put: "Why don't you buy some stakes in Liverpool Jake?"
While a fourth tweeted: "If Jake bought Liverpool he'd put himself in midfield."
Liverpool are currently eighth in the Premier League after a tricky start to the season.
They defeated Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 on Sunday to close the gap on the Premier League's top four.
Next up is League One outfit Derby County in the Carabao Cup. After that, they sign off ahead of the World Cup with a home clash against Southampton on Saturday afternoon.
