According to the Daily Mail, the American investment fund 777 Partners remain determined to acquire a Premier League club with West Ham United a potential target.
The US-based fund recently pulled out of a deal to take over at Everton
The Mail says: “Sources close to the group have not been put off from buying a club in England, with Sheffield United and West Ham United seen as potential targets.
“However, a takeover at the London Stadium won’t be easy to complete given the number of shareholders involved currently at the club.
Daniel Kretisnky has been tipped to become the new West Ham United full owner at some point in the near future but there’s also David Sullivan and the estate of the late David Gold to be considered at the London Stadium.
Indeed Sullivan 0 wuith 38 per cent of the shareholding has first preference of the late DG’s shares when they become available after probate.
It goes without saying that we desperately need some new direction both on and off the pitch after a particularly underwhelming Premier League campaign where we flirted with relegation and only had the Europa Conference League to be up- beat about.
Nevertheless, It is clear that 777 partners have ambition, even after their disappointment at Everton and West Ham United certainly represents an attractive option .
If anything it may galvanise the existing board into making some much needed strategic changes ahead of the forthcoming season
