West Ham have been subject to interest of a potential takeover as a massive organisation considers its options.

While there are a few who admire what they’ve done for the club, the large majority of West Ham fans aren’t all that keen on their current ownership. David Sullivan is the largest shareholder, owning 38.8% of the club, and he’s the one who is the most hated by supporters.

At the moment though, there are growing talks about what will happen to his stake when he eventually decides to take a step back from his extremely hands-on approach to owning the club.

However, there is always the possibility that that moment could come sooner than expected, especially with the ever growing presence of the multi-club model many owners are taking on.

According to iNews, AS Roma owner the Friedkin Group were once considering purchasing West Ham United. Considering how successful Roma are, although not at the levels they once were, this doesn’t seem like it would be a particularly bad move.

Either way, it doesn’t really matter about ifs or buts because the group now look set to take over fellow Premier League club Everton, who have had massive financial issues which resulted in them getting two separate points deductions last season.

For those who do want Sullivan gone, it seems like it will be a good while longer until they get what they desire. He clearly has no desire to sell up so hopefully he backs the recruitment team sufficiently in what is perhaps the club’s most important window in their history.
