KAM Sports has resumed talks to buy Everton from Farhad Moshiri, but the parties are still far apart.
Early this year, negotiations to buy the Toffees were initiated by an American investment group headed by real estate magnate Maciek Kaminski.
However, because of the pound’s recent decline against the US dollar, negotiations have become more heated.
The only offer currently being considered for Everton is from KAM Sport, but 90min understands that negotiations may still drag out for some time.
In a statement on their website, KAM Sports said: “As a general principle, we prefer to conduct our business in private to create the fairest environment for those involved – and in this particular situation, to minimize uncertainty for fans of Everton. It is regrettable that this has not been possible.
“We respectfully remain interested in acquiring the club as we believe its fans deserve nothing less than the best, and our offer to achieve this stands. However, in consideration of all Everton fans, we will not be making further public comments at this time.”
Despite not seeking to sell the team outright, Everton’s current owner Moshiri stated in July that he would welcome outside investment to aid in the building of their new Bramley Moore Dock stadium and in the transfer market.
