Liverpool are thought to be considering an expansion to Anfield that would take the capacity past the 60,000-seater mark.
The club has existing planning permission to add nearly 5,000 seats to the Anfield Road end of the ground and that would take the stadium to just shy of 60,000.
This planning application expires in September, however, and the club’s owners, Fenway Sports Group, are believed to be considering their options.
There are indications they will opt to allow those plans to expire and refine them before submitting fresh designs.

The Times report that the owners could pursue a bigger project that would take the capacity beyond 60,000.
The last major redevelopment of Anfield was completed three years ago when 9,000 extra seats were added to the Main Stand.
It was funded by a £100million loan from FSG, which is being repaid incrementally.

Whatever the decision on improvements to the stadium there is sure to be more demand for tickets than the club can supply.
This was illustrated by the 750,000 people who lined the streets of Liverpool for their Champions League trophy parade.
The club’s immediate priority is on their new £50million training facility in Kirkby, which is currently being built.
It will be opened in 2020 with next season the last Liverpool will spend at Melwood.
Anfield is currently the sixth largest stadium in the Premier League, with a maximum capacity of 54,074. It will move into the top four for capacity if redeveloped past the 60,000-seater mark, with Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, Spurs’ Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and Manchester United’s Old Trafford the only grounds that can currently hold more than 60,000 people.
If there is one thing Liverpool can boast about, it is the Anfield atmosphere.
The famous ground, built in 1884 and first occupied by Liverpool eight years later, is widely regarded as one of the best stadiums in the world.
It takes on an increased reputation – becoming something almost mythical – on those famous European nights under the floodlights.
Last season the Reds stunned Manchester City on their home turf, netting three times in the first half to all but knock Pep Guardiola’s side out the Champions League, while Anfield has already played host to a stunner of a match this term, with Liverpool beating Paris Saint-Germain courtesy of an injury-time winner from Roberto Firmino.
