Many Everton fans have been lauding the news from football.london that Alisher Usmanov could invest in the Goodison Park club.
The Merseysiders have recently been told that they can proceed with plans for a proposed new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock, which could provide an opportunity for the Russian billionaire.
Should Usmanov be involved with Everton?
Usmanov revealed to the Financial Times last year that he was ready to increase his involvement with Carlo Ancelotti’s team, and further hinted at potentially striking a deal for the naming rights at the new stadium.
With the plans been given the green light, the 67-year-old tycoon may well get his wish, and that may not be the last of the money that he could pump into the Toffees.
The news has got several Blues excited over his potential involvement with the club, as they could stand to benefit from an embarrassment of riches.
