American firm to buy Everton Football Club

Everton FC's takeover by American firm

Premier League team Everton is close to being sold to Miami-based investment company 777 Partners.

Everton in Ongoing Takeover Discussions: 

Financially struggling Everton Football Club has resumed discussions with an American company regarding a potential takeover. This development comes after talks with MSP Sports Capital collapsed in August.

If the takeover proceeds, it will mark the end of owner Farhad Moshiri’s tumultuous tenure, which began with his initial investment in the club in 2016.

Deal Not Yet Finalized:

While Everton has been actively seeking investment for some time, the source close to Moshiri emphasized that the deal has not been completed as of now.

Challenges On and Off the Pitch:

On the football field, Everton is facing challenges, currently lying 18th in the league with just one point from their first four games of the season. They narrowly avoided relegation in the last two seasons, including a last-day victory to secure their top-flight status last term.

Facing Premier League’s Financial Fair Play Inquiry:
