Farhad Moshiri could offer minority Everton shareholding to Maciek Kaminski amid £550million development

Farhad Moshiri and Maciek Kaminski have been in continuous contact over a potential Everton takeover but a “minority shareholding” could be offered to the US businessman, according to Times journalist Paul Joyce.

Writing on The Times website on 5 October, Joyce reported that Jeffrey Soros and Simon Horsman have set up an acquisition company called LAMF Global Ventures Corp amid interest in buying Everton from Moshiri.

It is understood that ex-Everton director Keith Harris is advising them with Soros’ unclue George being worth £5.9billion.

Moshiri is yet to hold a formal meeting with LAMF but Kaminski, who was part of a consortium that tried to buy Everton earlier this year, has remained in touch with the Blues owner.

Moshiri is trying to raise funds to help pay for Everton’s new £550million stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock after he lost the financial support of Russia-linked Alisher Usmanov.

No agreement with Kaminski is close but it is understood that the Polish-born American billionaire could be offer a minority share at the Merseyside club.

Sell up?

Everton fans were furious with Moshiri last season.

In fact, they were furious with the club as a whole until Frank Lampard came in and started to show some improvement.

But while on the pitch, things have improved massively thanks to the Toffees manager, off the pitch, it’s still not that great.

Moshiri and Bill Kenwright remain the decision-makers at Goodison Park and there’s no doubt that Kia Joorabchian is still having his input listened to, at least to a degree.

Everton’s financial issues are well-document and Moshiri has allowed them to grow to the point where we’ve had to sell off one of our best players of recent years just to assemble a squad capable of not being relegated.

Moshiri has taken us backwards but the new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock is something to look forward to, regardless of your views on leaving Goodison.

If he needs money to build it, he needs to get it and selling off shares to Kaminski could help regarding investment as new stadium funds do not count towards FFP.
