Dan Friedkin will be unlikely to be engaged in the Everton takeover.



According to The Athletic, Dan Friedkin is unlikely to become further involved in the Everton acquisition process.

Alan Myers, a Sky Sports journalist, claimed on June 8 that Friedkin had indicated an interest in owning Everton.

The American businessman, who owns Serie A powerhouse Roma, is allegedly valued $6.1 billion (£4.79 billion).

On June 12, The Athletic reported on their website that Friedkin is unlikely to proceed with his aspirations to buy the Merseyside club. The same may be said for John Textor, who considered an offer and spoke with Farhad Moshiri.

However, he is unlikely to be able to sell his Crystal Palace shares swiftly and will not be in the running to acquire Everton.

Paddy Boyland writes: “Dan Friedkin, the American owner of Roma in Italy and Cannes in France, has tentatively looked into a merger. At this point, neither of the two appear likely to proceed.”

Moshiri has received approaches from a number of possible bidders after the deal with 777 Partners ended. Friedkin and Texter may be out of the running, but other parties have expressed serious interest in purchasing Moshiri’s 94% stake.

Businessmen Who Support Everton Andy Bell and George Downing are two of the major candidates in the contest, and they have notified Moshiri that they have enough money to acquire the club.

They are said to have a total fortune of over £900 million and are supported by the Dell family. The two have contributed over £50 million of their own money to assist cover stadium costs, and they are concerned about the well-being of this great club.
