A Liverpool spokesperson has addressed a reports by the New York Post that owners FSG are planning to sell the Premier League club.

Liverpool have dismissed speculation that principal owner John W. Henry is considering selling the club.

The New York Post claimed Henry, who also owns MLB giants Boston Red Sox via his company Fenway Sports Group (FSG), had "quietly signalled" he was willing to entertain offers in excess of $US2 billion ($A3.6 billion) for Liverpool.

A club spokesperson said: "As loathed as we are to give a story of the nature a meaningful response, on behalf of the club's ownership I can completely dismiss this unfounded speculation.

"To repeat, once again, the club is not for sale, including in any 'quiet process' or anything of that nature."

FSG bought the Reds for $US477 million ($A660 million) in 2010 following Tom Hicks and George Gillett's ill-fated stewardship.

In June this year, Forbes valued Liverpool at $US1.94 billion ($A3.6 billion).
