According to The Telegraph, Maciek Kaminski has placed the three-week deadline because he is hoping to introduce himself to team manager Frank Lampard as the club’s prospective new owner when Everton face MLS side Minnesota United in the United States month.
The report also claims that even if the takeover hasn’t gone through due to the Premier League’s owners and directors’ test, the American billionaire still wants to meet the squad even if it is the confirmed custodian.
The consortium, led by former Manchester United and Chelsea CEO Peter Kenyon, was recently handed the right to organise a deal to take over the Goodison Park club.
According to reports, the Kenyon-led consortium are interested in buying the Merseyside club, with current owner Farhad Moshiri hoping to sell the club for around £500million.
Along with Kaminski, the chief executive of Minneapolis-based Talon Real Estate, the consortium also includes American entrepreneur John Thornton.
Kenyon has advised clubs and prospective owners for several years and recently led a consortium that tried but failed to buy Chelsea after Roman Abramovich put it up for sale. His company, Opto Advisers, were involved in the takeovers at Paris Saint-Germain and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Talks over a takeover at Everton have been ‘positive’, and the Polish-American Kaminski family are providing the financial boost for the proposed bid.
Should a deal be agreed, Everton will probably be sold for more than £500m, with the total, including the club’s debt. The Telegraph are reporting that Kaminski has committed to funding.
The American businessman has also reportedly committed to funding the club’s new £500m stadium. He has already visited the Bramley-Moore Dock site, where the state-of-the-art stadium is being built.
The Kaminski’s are also said to be keen to support Lampard and Brian Sorensen’s, the head coach of the women’s team, plans on how to take the club forward.
