US investors are pushing to buy Bournemouth in £150m takeover

A Las Vegas-led consortium is pushing to buy Bournemouth, the PA news agency understands.

Cherries owner Maxim Demin is believed to be weighing up whether to sell as US investors are willing to pay £150million for the south coast club.

In an American takeover in Bournemouth, more than half of the current Premier League clubs would have minority or majority shareholders in the US.

Business magnates Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali became the latest owners of the US Premier League when their consortium paid a world-record £4.25 billion in sports franchises to buy Chelsea.

Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, Aston Villa, West Ham, Crystal Palace, Fulham, Leeds and Liverpool have also made some US investments.

Bournemouth owner Maxim Demin is said to have explored the possibility of a sale in the past and could now reignite that interest.

Russian-born but British national Demin bought Bournemouth in 2011 and his investment propelled the club into the Premier League in 2015.

Demin has been the sole shareholder of Bournemouth since 2019 when he bought back a 25 per cent stake he had previously sold to company PEAK6 Investments.

The Cherries have returned to the Premier League this season but manager Scott Parker was sacked after just four games after a 9-0 hammering against Liverpool.

The trainer-less south coast side have since held a goalless draw against Wolves and a 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest, with caretaker Gary O’Neill having a noticeable impact.

Bournemouth was asked for comment.
