The FA has contacted Manchester City to learn more about what led paying a settlement after a criticism they ventured to their scouting software to them.
The Reds paid City a fee in the area of #1m after complaining that their version of the software Scout 7 had been accessed in 2013.
The settlement had been made a year following several scouts transferred from the Etihad to Anfield.
It appears neither the FA nor the Premier League knew about this payment last month until it was reported by the press.
Premier League rules state they desire a complaint from a club to hold their own evaluation – something which hasnt been received up to now.
But FA rules say:A player should always behave in the best interests of the sport and will not act in any way which is improper or brings the game into disrepute.
Both the Liverpool and Manchester City are yet to comment on this development.
Liverpool stated upon the first report last month:we dont offer any comment on any allegations relating to legal agreements it may or may not have entered into any other team, organisation or individual.
