Images have been released by the Daily Mail illustrating a £150 million plan to increase Anfield to a 58,500-seater stadium. 

Liverpool have been planning on increasing the size of the ground since John Henry came in as the owner of the club. They are set to apply for planning permission before the end of the season in hope of having the Anfield Road end increased by 2018. 

In order for this deal to go through, a number of houses surrounding the stand would have to be demolished and it is known that Liverpool City Council has already agreed deals amongst 67 of the 71 located around the area. 

With Premier League success on the horizon, the club are looking to return to the old successful days by increasing their attendances and with that increasing the amount of silverware. 

Currently the ground holds 45,200 fans, making it the sixth biggest stadium in the Premier League but if these plans go through then Liverpool will come in third behind Arsenal and Manchester United. 

Architects, KSS, have been brought in to help develop the plans and they are the same group who helped develop Manchester City's stadium in 2002 and the Chelsea Village at Stamford Bridge.

Any risk of a drop in attendances have been removed with the plans detailing that the extension will go around the current stand therefore the club can continue to sell out the ground.

If Brendan Rodgers goes on to claim the Premier League crown then the club are going to need the extra room for more success which looks to be on its way for the Reds.
