QATAR are considering a £1billion investment in Tottenham Hotspur, according to reports.

Qatar Sports Investments (QSI) chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi, who is also president of Paris Saint-Germain, met with Spurs chief Daniel Levy last week.

Sources close to Levy claim that he met with Al-Khelaifi purely “as friends”.

But according to the Telegraph, QSI are mulling over an offer.

They claim that industry specialists believe that QSI have been presented with the possibility of buying a 25 per cent stake in Spurs, in exchange for just shy of £1bn.

A potential deal could be made easier by Levy and Al-Khelaifi’s good relationship.

QSI have been sole owners of PSG since 2012, and last year purchased a 22 per cent stake of Portuguese top flight side Braga.

Having been solely responsible for PSG for a decade, Qatar are reportedly now seeking to build a multi-club portfolio that could rival that of the City Group.

Manchester City’s owners possess a global network of clubs including New York City FC, Girona, Melbourne City FC and Tokohama F. Marinos.

Should QSI choose to invest in Spurs it would likely be for a minority stake, with Uefa uncomfortable with the possibility of clubs with the same majority owners potentially playing each other in their competitions.

Tottenham have denied Levy’s meeting with Al-Khelaifi being with regards to investment in the club.

But reports claim that an injection of funds from outside could appeal to current Spurs owner Joe Lewis.

Enic injected £150m into Tottenham last May, an investment made to boost the club on and off the pitch.

Spurs subsequently spent around £150m on transfers, including the acquisitions of Richarlison, Yves Bissouma and former loanee Cristian Romero.

QSI previously showed little interest in involving themselves in a Premier League club.

But that stance has changed since the Qatar World Cup.

Ahead of the 2026 World Cup in the US, Canada and Mexico, QSI are said to be seeking fresh American investment in PSG, as well as sports broadcasting network BeIN.
