Dubai Holdings, the Middle Eastern state's investment arm, has emerged as a leading bidder for Liverpool, according to reports yesterday.

The company, which has concerns in the health, communications, real estate, tourism and energy sectors, has renewed its interest in the club after walking away from negotiations earlier in the year.

The Liverpool Chairman, David Moores, who has a 51 per cent stake in the club, values the parent company at £300m. Other interested parties include the Belfast property millionaire, John Miskelly, and an unnamed American company.
