Finance Expert: Everton more up for sale than Liverpool in recent months
We’re delighted to welcome football finance expert Dr Daniel Plumley as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Everton...
Dan Plumley has insisted that Everton have been more up for sale than Liverpool in recent months with the scenario in Merseyside everchanging.
The Finance Expert reacted as David Ornstein shared on Twitter that the Toffees may be “next” to be taken over in the Premier League this season.
Liverpool are now up for sale, but Plumley admitted that Farhad Moshiri has openly been looking for an investment with interest likely to be high if the club went on the market.
“I would go as far as to say that Everton have been more up for sale in recent months than Liverpool,” he exclusively told Goodison News.
“The narrative behind the scenes, club finances have been an issue, ownership has been a problem and the new stadium. I think, Moshiri, maybe not actively wanting to sell outright, but he has been looking for investors.
“I think there would be interest in Everton, there is a lot going on there but if you look at some of the key markers, you’ve got an established Premier League football club, a lot of history, big fan base, it is in a very good city in the UK.
“The stadium is a massive thing in terms of what it will do to revenues moving forward, but counter to that, that same stadium has been a sticking point at the minute, and a lot of that debt attached to it is to Moshiri himself. So, if you’re a new owner coming in, you’ve got to look at taking that on as well and that will be in the negotiations of how that plays out.
“Overall, there would be interest in Everton.”
This would be huge.
After all of the speculation with Peter Kenyon, Jeffrey Soros and Maciek Kaminski over the past year, the interest is already high and Everton could easily see a new owner soon.
Moshiri is currently going through yet another rough patch with the toffees, and it may take staying in the Premier League yet again to get investors interested.
All eyes are on Goodison Park.
