Everton are currently a club in crisis with the team in the relegation zone and manager Frank Lampard having been sacked. There has also been speculation that Moshiri has put the club up for sale for £550 million, but the owner has insisted that is not quite the case.

“The club is not for sale but I have been talking to top investors, really quality, to bridge a gap on the stadium,” he told the club’s Fan Advisory Board. “I can do it myself and the reason I want to do it is to bring top sport investors to Everton. We are close to having a done. It is not selling the club at all. It is bringing more expertise in terms of sponsorship, commercial development and a lot of specialist sport investors have this pool of knowledge.”

Everton have already come together this season to express their frustration at the direction the club is heading in and to call on Moshiri to make “sweeping changes.” The club’s owners were also forced to stay away from Everton’s Premier League match against amid safety concerns after the club claimed to have received threats.

The Toffees return to action on the pitch on Saturday with a visit from Premier League leaders Arsenal.
