Liverpool have another ideal transfer destination as FSG expansion can replicate Man City edge

FSG could look to copy Man City's Premier League advantage after Brexit regulations by finding a feeder club for Liverpool, and they may have an ideal target.

In recent years, empires have emerged onto the scene in modern football. From Red Bull's empire that stretches four continents to that of Manchester City, and even Brighton, the trend seems to be shifting towards an alliance between groups of clubs.

The regulations in the aftermath of Brexit has only necessitated the need for Premier League clubs to extend their network, with players like Melkamu Frauendorf and Stefan Bajčetić, who are both currently away with Liverpool's first team squad in pre-season, now no longer able to transfer to England in the same way as the aforementioned duo were capable of doing.

This has put Liverpool at a significant recruitment disadvantage and while the club's rivals, Manchester City, have only increased their hegemony in the field with the City Football Group acquiring even more clubs, the latest of which became Palermo, FSG cannot sit idle forever. 

MSK Zilina

Exist two ideal potential feeder clubs for Liverpool in Partizan Belgrade and FC Copenhagen, now, other potential candidate in MSK Zilina.

The Slovakian side have an impressive record of producing talents for the country's national team, including Milan Škriniar, and they are a side who are heavily focused on developing young talent both from regions close to the country, but their scouting networks also stretches further afield to Africa, where Zilina continue to recruit from their satellite club MSK Zilina Africa FC. With Slovakia part of the EU, Zilina are also able to recruit players from the region much easier and before their 18th birthday as opposed to Liverpool.

With the club already not a stranger to forming partnerships around the globe through their network in Africa, Zilina certainly seem like a side who are willing to build on their reach and forming a relationship with Liverpool would only help the Slovakian club to attract more talent to the club.

The club currently have one of the youngest squads in the top 31 European leagues with an average age of just 20.5, and Zilina's oldest player is aged just 24. Despite such an inexperienced squad, Zilina finished sixth in the Slovakian Fortuna Liga, and only narrowly missed out on qualification to Europe.
