AS Roma owner Dan Friedkin interested in acquiring Everton

Roma owner Dan Friedkin has surfaced as one of several parties interested in acquiring Premier League club Everton.

American businessman Friedkin, with an estimated net worth of £4.8bn, seeks an exclusivity agreement to buy current owner Farhad Moshiri’s 94% stake in the club.

BBC Sport reported that MSP Sports Capital and local businessmen Andy Bell and George Downing, who have loaned the Toffees £158m, are also pursuing a takeover.

Michael Dell, CEO of Dell Technologies, and Kenneth King of investment firm A Cap are also contenders.

Crystal Palace co-owner John Textor showed interest in purchasing Everton last month and is looking to sell his 45% stake in the Eagles.
Moshiri had agreed to sell the Blues to Miami-based investment firm 777 Partners in September, but after a lengthy process, the sales and purchase agreement concluded on 31 May.
