Campbell claims 'lots of investors' keen on buying Tottenham as £1.6bn sale talks held

The multifunctional stadium at Tottenham makes them an extremely attractive investment and there will be “lots of parties interested”.

That is according to ex-Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell, speaking exclusively after Football Insider revealed that a Spurs takeover could be on the cards.

It is understood that outright purchase or partial buyout were both on the table even before the disastrous European Super League plans.

Principal shareholder Joe Lewis found a 50 per cent buyer at the end of last year in a deal which would have been worth £1.6bn in total. 

But chairman Daniel Levy was unwilling to relinquish any control and so talks collapsed.

Campbell claims that there will be no shortage of future investors and Spurs have their sparkling new stadium to thank for that.

He told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs: “I think if they came on the market, there would be a lot of interest from investors.

“They’ve got a new multifunctional stadium that can host NFL. The NFL has just got the 17th game of the season approved, which will make more money.

“The club is all geared for success. I don’t see why there wouldn’t be interest, I think there would be a lot of parties interested.”

It has been a tumultuous week at Spurs after Jose Mourinho was sacked shortly after the ill-fated Super League plan was announced.

Ryan Mason will take temporary charge of Tottenham who are currently 6th in the Premier League table and face Man City in the League Cup final on Sunday.
