The Telegraph have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are one of several Premier League sides who are generating plenty of interest among investors from the United States.
The report discusses the increasing number of US investors in the English top-flight in light of 777’s takeover of Everton, stating that investment from across the pond is expected to continue to flow into the Premier League.
Tottenham are named one of the most lucrative clubs for those who are trying to get a piece of the pie in the most-watched football league in the world.
In fact, the report quotes one banker, who recently offered funds for a consortium bidding for Manchester United, as saying: “Tottenham are always of interest if someone can finally get Daniel Levy down on price.”
Meanwhile, another top lender is alleged to have said about the Lilywhites: “Spurs are of five easy sales here”.
The market for Tottenham has cooled for now
However, The Telegraph add that following the frenzy of bidding for Chelsea, the market has cooled slightly for the moment.
The report also goes on to highlight some concerns in England about an increasing number of Premier League clubs being American-owned, given that it was US-based owners who were the main conspirators behind the defunct European Super League plot.
The publication suggests that the potential of a 39th game being played in the US is an increasingly more likely possibility as a result of the aforementioned changes.
Phil Murphy, the Democratic Governor of New Jersey, is quoted as saying back in July about the possibility of bringing the Premier League stateside: “I can say, unequivocally, we would die to have a real competitive game anywhere in America.”

This reported boom in the amount of American investment into the Premier League is exactly why ENIC and Daniel Levy will not be in a hurry to sell Spurs.
The game appears to be on the verge of a sea change, which is why they might believe that the value of the club is going to increase exponentially if they hold out for a few more years.
