Liverpool keen on buying French club Amiens

Liverpool are keen on acquiring Ligue 2 side Amiens after failing in a deal to purchase French top-flight side Toulouse in the recent period.

Football Insider reveals Liverpool and FSG are still in the market to acquire a new club, with Ligue 2 side Amiens on their radar. The Reds reportedly failed to broker a deal to purchase Ligue 1 side Toulouse recently as they continue on their quest to build a Manchester City-type, multi-club model.

Liverpool keen on buying Amiens?

Liverpool and FSG, led by their new CEO of Football, Michael Edwards, are keen to establish a new era of football in Merseyside that involves the acquisition of a foreign club. The Reds are leaning towards a Manchester City-type deal to buy a new team, which will likely be the beginning of their multi-club model.

In recent months, since the agreement between FSG and Edwards, the latter tried to broker a deal to purchase Ligue 1 side Toulouse, but they have failed in their bid. Considering the two sides recently met in the Europa League group stages, it must have been a complicated affair, and potentially having two clubs competing in Europe will always raise complications in the future.

Either way, they could not find a way in negotiations, and now they are angling a move for another French club, Ligue 2 side Amiens. The minnows are far from returning to the top flight anytime soon, but they could be a good club for Liverpool to build their multi-club level profile on.

Talks are expected to occur, with Edwards having a part to play despite only taking over as FSG’s CEO of Football in June. Acquiring clubs are always a prolonged affair, which, in the case of Liverpool’s interest in Amiens, will be a long one and will probably take months before conclusions are reached.

Liverpool to enter a new phase

A Manchester City-type deal to buy another club will do Liverpool’s plans a world of good, as a multi-club model has its merits. Chelsea also entered the realm of owning different clubs from around, but it’s Manchester City who are the best example to showcase for anyone planning on creating a similar model.

Liverpool’s attempts to buy Toulouse and now Amiens showcase their desire to move in a new direction and leave the traditional form of footballing business behind. With another club on their portfolio, the Merseysiders can have many benefits, including sending players on loan for development and helping them gain essential minutes of first-team action, which will largely benefit their stars emerging from the academy.
