Moore, 66, spent three years as CEO at Anfield having arrived in June 2017 and oversaw a period of growth and success on and off the field before handing over the reins to Billy Hogan at the end of August.
He had previously been linked with a return to the game to oversee the challenge of getting Wrexham into gear in the event of what is expected to be a successful takeover by stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.
The former Reebok, Sega, Microsoft and EA Sports executive has his roots in Wales and recently became honorary president of Gresford Athletic, a lower-tier Welsh side that plays four miles from the Racecourse Stadium.
Moore was a PE teacher at a school in Llangollen before moving to the United States.
Welsh and Wrexham football fans became very excited at the news…
Bloody hell. That is huge https://t.co/0iVMZZIZRI

Rob and Ryan reiterated the first crucial change at Wrexham would be the appointment of an ‘experienced CEO’. It looks like former Liverpool CEO Peter Moore could be the answer 👀 #WxmAFC https://t.co/GIwlrdTNlI
