In brief: Probably fatty liver
It is possibly fatty liver but we can not be sure just by the liver enzyme levels.
Ultrasound will help us know more about liver. Weight loss should improve if liver enzyme levels if it is really fatty liver.

In brief: May be fatty liver
The fact that he is overweight make me think of fatty liver disease which is an infiltration of liver tissue with fat.
If he drinks alcohol he should quit. Besides helping improve any liver abnormality from alcohol it will also help weight loss by cutting calories.
