Tottenham Hotspur are in talks over investment from Qatar Sports Investments as the Paris Saint-Germain owners accelerate efforts to fund another football club. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has held a meeting to discuss the avenue as Qatar seek involvement in English football.
Middle Eastern influence is growing in the Premier League, with Abu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia at the helm of Manchester City and Newcastle United, respectively.
And Qatar could soon join them, with PSG’s ownership looking to branch out into another of Europe’s elite domestic leagues.
According to CBS Sports, Qatar Sports Investments is going ahead with plans to invest a minority into another club this year.
The process is in its early stages, but talks have already taken place between Levy and Nasser Al-Khelaifi earlier this week, where the Qatari chief explored the opportunity.
QSI hasn’t settled on Spurs yet, though, and the discussions in London were just part of a widescale search involving different Premier League outfits.
But the gulf state is expected to land in the Premier League in 2023, expanding its presence in Europe, currently owning 23 per cent of Braga. South America is also being eyed for investment.
