An American business top weight, Todd Boehly has his eyes on acquiring a Premier League club based in London, with Chelsea and Tottenham at sight,Evening Standard reports.
Boehly, who has a 20 per cent stake in the MLB franchise the LA Dodgers, is looking to add to his sports portfolio.
The 46-year-old would prefer a shot at Spurs, who are the more valuable club at this moment,according to the report.
Roman Abramovich values his Tamford Bridge club in the region of £2.5bn, but it seems Boehly will opt in for their rivals side Tottenham for their state-of-the-art stadium and training facilities.
However,no confirmation has emerged whatsoever if either Abramovich or his Tottenham counterpart Daniel Levy are willing to sell.
As well as his stake in the Dodgers, Boehly is the chairman of Eldridge industries, a private investment firm that, in April, was valued at €6bn (£4.7bn) by Barron’s, a US-based financial magazine.
