English Premier League’s Everton club is likely to be sold to the Miami-based investment group 777 Partners. Sevilla, Hertha Berlin, and Standard Liege are just a few of the football teams that group 777 already owns. The primary stakeholder at Everton, Farhad Moshiri, has reportedly been in talks with multi-club investor 777 Partners.

Since it became known that the New York organisation MSP Sports Capital had ended its exclusivity arrangement with Moshiri,  talks with 777 partners have begun taking place. Once all of the prerequisites for the league have been satisfied, 777 Partners is seeking a full takeover. It might take several months to finish the deal. 

It appears that Moshiri is suddenly eager to sell the team after declaring in February that the club was "not for sale" to Everton's fan advisory board. Despite spending more than £750 million since 2016, some Everton fans have expressed dissatisfaction with his ownership. Before some of the games at Goodison Park last season, they staged rallies demanding the departure of Moshiri and the board.

The Toffees will appear before an impartial commission the following month to answer allegations that it violated the Premier League's financial play regulations. Everton has asserted their readiness to defend their stance while denying any misconduct. For the fifth year in a row, the Toffees reported financial losses in March of this year. They have suffered losses totalling more than £430 million over the past five years.

Everton also intends to relocate to a new stadium. The cost of the project which is now underway on Bramley Moore Dock, might total £760 million. The numbers provided by the club last year have increased by £260 million. The club is currently ranked 18th in the Premier League and has avoided relegation the past two seasons.
