Everton appear to be a club on the up after the Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, said they could have a new stadium within two years.
The Blues are in the midst of a new era thanks to billionaire Farhad Moshiri’s recent ascent to becoming the club’s majority shareholder, while the appointment of highly-rated coach Ronald Koeman has also raised expectations at Goodison Park ahead of the new Premier League season.
Toffees chairman Bill Kenwright and Moshiri met with Mayor Anderson in London on Tuesday to discuss the possibility of a new stadium – something which has been a key objective of the club for several years.
Anderson, who is a big Everton fan, tweeted a photo of the three men and wrote: “Great meeting with Farhad. Still believe a new stadium in 2 yrs is achievable. £COYB”.
Everton are looking at a docklands-based site or land at Stonebridge Cross in Croxteth after previous plans to develop a site at Walton Hall Park in Liverpool were abandoned in May, a few months after Moshiri’s majority stakeholding was confirmed.
Punters looking to use a free bet might fancy backing Everton to do well in the upcoming Premier League campaign.
