The world's authoritative private equity investment media "International Private Equity" magazine reported that American businessman Dagrosa is preparing to acquire a Premier League club.
The original text did not disclose which club Dagrosa plans to acquire, but combined with previous reports from the Daily Mail, The Athletic and other media, the club Dagrosa plans to acquire is Southampton.
It is reported that the consortium headed by American businessman Dagrosa has signed a letter of intent, and they will sign an 80% stake in this Premier League club. The purchase of the equity is expected to cost 210 million US dollars, and then Dagrosa will inject 50 million US dollars into the team.
In order to complete the acquisition by Dagrosa's consortium, the well-known investment company Ares Management also provided part of the funds. Ruisheng Investment is a large investment and asset management company listed on the New York Stock Exchange. It was established in 1997 and is headquartered in Los Angeles.
After Dagrosa completes the acquisition, he will replace Gao Jisheng as the new major shareholder of Southampton. The Liebherr family will continue to hold the remaining 20% of the shares.
Southampton will face Burnley in the third round of the league. Interestingly, Burnley has recently acquired rumors with another American consortium ALK Capital.
