Finance Guru: Everton takeover far away as new multi-club empire possible
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 nothing is off the table as Maciek Kaminski could include Everton in a new multi-club empire under his potential future ownership.
The Finance Expert admitted that multi-club ownership allows investors to globalise their portfolios and the Toffees would be the big club needed to make it happen, although Farhad Moshiri remains a sticking point.
It has been reported by the Liverpool Echo that Kaminski is still interested in buying into the club, although hopes of a takeover aren’t heavy right now – after he also completed the purchase of Greek side Panetolikos.
“I don’t think anything is off the table in regards to that,” he exclusively told Goodison News.
“Multi-club ownership is the model of choice for some investors at the minute, it allows you to globalise the portfolio and it spreads the risk which is increasingly attractive to investors. It’s a possibility, absolutely.

“The two sticking points in it, with one thing linked with Everton, if you’re going to run that kind of model, you need an overarching big club to service that, Everton could be that club in the Premier League with broadcast money and the new stadium.
“The sticking point for him and Everton will be Farhad Moshiri and whether or not he wants a full takeover which was a problem in the summer.
“The other line in there about Atletico Madrid and what they give you is regular guaranteed Champions League football at the minute so they’re ahead of Everton in that regard of European exposure, so, it’s a possibility and they could potentially be the big club in that model.
“You would sense that this is a long way from getting over the line in terms of an Everton takeover.”
