EVERTON’S owners are closing in on a deal to sell the club to US private investment firm 777 Partners, according to reports.

That is despite spending hundreds of millions on transfers.

And now it is understood he could be set to offload the club for a “fraction” of the money he has invested.

According to Bloomberg, Moshiri and 777 Partners are “close to an agreement” following “months of talks”.

Moshiri, who previously held a stake in Arsenal, purchased a 49.9 per cent of Everton back in 2016.

Last year, he increased those shares to 94 per cent.

It was much of the same last season as Sean Dyche kept them up by the skin of their teeth on the final day as they secured 17th place.


And Toffees supporters have seen little sign of improvement in their opening four games of the new campaign, taking one point from a possible 12.
