According to readers of EPL Talk, Tottenham Hotspur is most likely to be the next club to be purchased by American investors. In the poll, 25% of voters chose Spurs. The other Premier League teams most likely to be taken over by U.S. investors are:

2. Arsenal, 21%
3. Blackburn, 11%
4. Everton, 11%
5. Reading, 9%
6. Bolton, 7%
7. Birmingham, 7%
8. Wigan, 5%
9. Middlesbrough, 4%

In related news, New York Yankees boss Hank Steinbrenner has admitted that he had a chance to purchase one third of Spurs, but turned down the opportunity which he now regrets. However, Steinbrenner is still interested in investing in a Premier League club, so if he doesn’t make a move for Spurs again, it may be another club from those listed above.

In a similar poll conducted in April 2007, Spurs was again named most likely to be purchased by American investors.

  1. SELL OK TO NOBODY ELSE ONLY BILL GATES THATS THE WAY I WOULD GO IF MR GATES WAS INTERESTED IN A TAKEOVER , HE DON`T HAVE TO BE INTERESTED IN ENGLISH FOOTBALL BUT THE VERY FACT THAT HE WOULD GIVE THE BIG RED ONE A MORE THAN EVEN RUN FOR HIS MONEY, FOOTBALL DOMATION BY CHELSEA WOULD BE LESS THAN A TRICKLE SO COME ON DOWN PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEESE MR GATES , I KNOW IF YOU GOT THAT ROCKY V RUSSIAN YOU WOULD BE SENSATIONAL .

  2. Arsenal, be sold!?
    You’re out of ur fricken mind!!
    An American has already tried to buy us, and so has a Russian, we’re just too stubborn to be sold out.
    We’re the only team in the top 4 that is still in British hands, and they call us the least English team… tisk tisk tisk.

  3. Untill our septic cousins understand the game I think they should keep out of it, fact is, in football (not soccer) money doesn’t guarentee success, (see Chelsea) I’d keep a close eye on the goings on at Anfield to see what happens when the $$ come in.

  4. I voted for Everton for two reasons…1) They would be significantly cheaper than Tottenham and have similar if not larger fanbase 2) They have a solid base which could only get better with the right investment.
