777 Partners interested in investing in Everton

Miami-based private equity investment firm 777 Partners are keen on investing in Everton, reports The Athletic.

The Toffees owner Farhad Moshiri is looking for investment, and MSP Sports Capital have already been linked.

The New York-based group want to acquire a minority stake.

Their chairman Jahm Najafi was at Goodison Park in February to watch Everton against Southampton.

He was shown around key club sites by Everton officials before the game.

MSP are still keen but 777 Partners have emerged as the latest investors to register interest.

The early process of exploring a purchase has started, but the current struggles of the club on and off the pitch are being considered.

Everton are 17th in the Premier League after 31 games, with only a superior goal difference keeping them above the drop zone.

The Merseyside club could also be sanctioned for alleged Financial Fair Play breaches.

If they are punished by a points deduction, they will be playing in the Championship next season.

Everton have never been relegated from the Premier League and last suffered relegation in 1951.

Whatever happens, 777 Partners remain keen on investing.

The Blues fans have been protesting against the ownership of Moshiri.

The Iranian-born businessman has been in charge since 2016, but things have continually deteriorated.

The club have got a lot of their recruitment wrong, and it could finally backfire.

Manager Sean Dyche has been tasked with keeping them up, and he has seven more games to achieve the feat.
