English Premier League outfit Liverpool are not only having it good on the pitch this time around as the success of the club is also being felt in the profit made by the club.

The latest report reveals that the Reds are set to become the first club in football history to record an annual net profit of over £100 million Inside World Football claims.

The reason for the swollen account of the Merseyside team has been attributed to their last season’s success where they reached the UEFA Champions League finals and earned £81.3 million to add to the over £140 million that was cashed in for the sale of Brazilian international Philippe Coutinho who moved to Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona.

A record net profit of £98 million is currently standing by former Premier League champions Leicester City in 2017 after winning their first EPL trophy in the club’s history.

However, Liverpool have hand to spend big on the likes of Virgil Van Dijk, Alisson Becker, Fabinho and Naby Keita but they are required to pay over the course of their contracts which gives them the financial relieve.

There is no doubt that the Reds will now be able to flex financial muscles with top clubs in terms of transfer activities.
