Many English clubs are now fully or partially owned by American celebrities and businessmen. Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have made the small club Wrexham known worldwide, Tom Brady has invested in Birmingham City, and Will Ferrell is linked with Leeds.

Basketball stars are also getting involved in English football. LeBron James has shown interest in Liverpool, and now it has been revealed that another basketball legend, Shaquille O'Neal, is considering buying a stake in London’s West Ham United.

According to The Sun, Shaquille O'Neal loves English football and is currently weighing the pros and cons of such an investment.

"Shaq loves British football, and he has talked about investing serious money in a club.

He attended a game at the end of the season and was thrilled. Now it depends on whether he can handle it financially.

Shaq is really interested in what deal he could strike," The Sun reports.

Shaquille O'Neal, a Hall of Famer, has been a fifteen-time All-Star, a four-time NBA champion, and a three-time Finals MVP.

The basketball legend's investment in West Ham could be an interesting option for both the American and the club, and it would also help popularize football in the United States.
