Sky Sports News editor Alan Myers believes that Everton will see ‘investment’ despite the apparent collapse in takeover talks.

After a dismal season on the field that saw the Toffees just about avoid relegation and disaster, their summer has begun with a messy situation of sorts too. 

Last month The Telegraph revealed that former Manchester United and Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon was leading a consortium with the hope of buying the club.

However, an update from the BBC stated that the Blue would not be entertaining talks over a possible takeover with the Kenyon-led group any further.

Kenyon alongside American tycoons Maciek Kaminski and John Thornton secured a period of exclusivity to hold discussions with current owner Farhad Moshiri and despite reports a source close to the Kaminski family have claimed that talks are still ongoing.

Moshiri who increased his stake in the club to 94.1% back in January is reportedly only willing to listen to offers in the region of £500m for the sale of the club but despite the breakdown Myers believes the club will see ‘investment’.

Taking to Twitter he posted: 

TIF Thoughts on Everton…

After such a torrid season, Blues fans will be screaming out for the club to make improvements yet James Tarkowski is the only arrival thus far and he came in on a free transfer which perhaps could be telling. 

Journalist David Hughes previously admitted in June on the All Together Now podcast (24:40) that he felt it hard to envisage ‘investment’ in the side from Moshiri amid the uncertainty surrounding the ownership.

However, perhaps as talks seemingly conclude and with the club have receiving £60m for the landmark departure of Richarlison maybe Frank Lampard can put together a side fit and able for the challenges that the Premier League poses in his first full season at the club.
