Noel Whelan has dropped a claim on the potential takeover of West Ham United after a previous reveal by Football Insider involving the owners.
A source from the East London club have told the news outlet that David Gold and David Sullivan are open to selling it and a number of talks have already been held with various parties.
Should GSB sell West Ham?
They have set their own price of £600m to buy the London Stadium faithful which they feel is a reasonable sum despite the financial impact as a result of the global pandemic.
Now, speaking to Football Insider, Whelan has claimed that there will be plenty of interest from various investors if the club were too be put up for sale:
“There will be no shortage of takers if and when West Ham goes up for sale.
“That is a very desirable club to own. A London based club will always be an attractive option to investors.
“They’ve got the London Stadium as well. That wouldn’t put anyone off a potential purchase it has to be said.
“I’m sure there would be a lot of investors queueing up and being very curious about that one if the opportunity to buy the club was ever there.”
West Ham are in a good position
The Hammers are currently in a very good position at the moment on the pitch, as they sit in fifth spot in the Premier League table on 42 points from 24 games, only outside of the automatic UEFA Champions League qualification places on goal difference (BBC Sport).
The fact that they are also based in the capital would certainly be an attraction for investors, added to their relatively new and shiny stadium.
As Whelan claims, there will likely be a lot of interest in buying the Irons should they be put on sale.
