Everton takeover: 777 Partners consider move for Blues with deal already wrapped up in Germany
Miami-based investment firm 777 Partners are “considering a move for Everton” as they aim to add to their multi-club profile, according to The Athletic.
The news outlet reported on Sunday (19 March) that 777 Partners already have stakes at Standard Liege, Red Star Paris, Genoa, Sevilla, Vasco da Gama, Melbourne Victory and Hertha Berlin.
It is understood that 777 sealed the deal to become minority shareholders at Hertha this week but “still has plenty of convincing to do” when it comes to meeting their goals.
Moshiri needs help
Farhad Moshiri doesn’t seem to be interested in selling Everton but he does have interest in selling off shares to investors, who can help him pay for the construction of the new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock.
Obviously, it’s an expensive project and losing the financial backing of Russian oligarch Alisher Usmanov definitely hurt the Iranian-British businessman.

Who are 777 Partners though?
They’re based in Florida in the USA and have a big portfolio of clubs they’re invested in.
It’s a fairly good list of clubs too.
All of them are big clubs in their own country and most of them are based in big cities.
From Rio de Janeiro to Melbourne and from Paris to Seville, Liverpool could be added to that list in the coming months if Moshiri is able to strike a deal with the Americans.
In terms of a full takeover, we don’t see anything like that happening soon.
Moshiri will no doubt want to see through the construction of the new stadium and, hopefully, some solid finishes in the Premier League first.
