Everton: Journalist claims Farhad Moshiri is open to selling the club

Image for Everton: Journalist claims Farhad Moshiri is open to selling the club

Journalist Paul Brown has stated that Farhad Moshiri is interested in selling Everton despite claiming the club isn’t for sale.

Moshiri increased his stake in the club to 94.1% back in January but reports soon emerged suggesting that he was willing to listen to offers in the region of £500m for the Toffees.

However, the British-Iranian businessman has since said that the club is not for sale and that he is only interested in investors.

The Merseysiders are currently funding their new Bramley-Moore Dock Stadium but while their majority owner denies claims he is looking to move the club on, Brown is of the impression that he is open to a sale.

He told GIVEMESPORT: “Despite his public comments that the club is not for sale, Moshiri is clearly interested in selling Everton.”

Do you want Moshiri to sell Everton?





Moshiri has invested over £500m since coming to the club but it’s fair to say that investment hasn’t been portrayed on the field.

Frank Lampard’s side just staved off relegation last season in what was a very concerning low for the club.

Reports have suggested that the tycoon needs to sell the club or seek investment to complete their new 52,888-seater venue which is another worry for supporters.

The future of their beloved club does remain uncertain but amid talks of a potential sale, it doesn’t make for good reading coming into the January window.

We’d imagine Moshiri is unlikely to provide funds when the market reopens and considering the Evertonians find themselves once again threatened by relegation that could prove detrimental to their hopes of survival.
