The Reds reinvested most of their earnings on big-money signings , Alisson, Naby Keita and , however their fees are spread over the course of their contracts and will not be fully represented in the report.

Liverpool also received £145.9m for their fourth-placed finish in last year's Premier League. This, alongside their match-day income, media rights and commercial deals should see the Reds post a considerable profit.

An internal report from UEFA also hinted at Liverpool breaking the record.

It said: “UEFA Champions League prize money of €82m drove Leicester City FC to the highest net profit in history in FY2017 (€98m), beating the previous record of €78m set by FC in FY2014 (with Liverpool FC set to break that record again in FY2018).”

Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group and, more recently, chairman Peter Moore have revolutionised the club's off-field position, which is in stark contrast to the dark days of 2010.

The club nearly entered administration that year, having owed £282million to Royal Bank of Scotland under previous owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks.
