American businessman Todd Boehly is keen on making an offer to buy one of London’s top clubs, and is currently considering Tottenham and Chelsea for offers.
The 46-year old currently owns a 20 per cent stake in the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team. But he is keen to move into the Premier League market.
Boehly is backed by his private investment firm Eldridge Industries, which controls shares in many other businesses from real estate, insurance and sport.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is believed to want around £2.5bn if he were to sell the club, although sources at Chelsea insist it is not for sale.
In the current market and taking into consideration their new stadium, Spurs could be a more expensive purchase, however they are believed to be the favoured club if Boehly does make an offer.
Both Spurs and Chelsea have denied that any approaches have been made to them regarding a sale, and neither appear to be interested at the current time.
