The Daily Express US reported that Jay Z, the American rapper and businessman, is showing interest in a potential £2.2 billion takeover of Tottenham Hotspur, an English Premier League club. The consideration for the acquisition comes after Tottenham’s current owner, Joe Lewis, pleaded not guilty to charges of insider trading in the United States. If Lewis is convicted, Jay Z, backed by a group of US investors, may move forward with the bid for the football club.
It’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time Jay Z has expressed interest in English football clubs. In the past, he had shown interest in becoming a major investor in Arsenal, but that bid did not materialize.
Currently, Jay Z is a joint-owner of the NBA basketball team New Jersey Nets. His representatives have indicated that he remains intrigued by the potential opportunity of owning a significant stake in a football club like Tottenham, given the global reach and prestige associated with such a position.
