LIVERPOOL, England, Nov. 9 (UPI) -- Another U.S. sports tycoon wants to buy into a British soccer team: NFL New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is interested in the Liverpool Arsenal.

Kraft's interest follows the purchase of Manchester United by Malcolm Glazer, own of the NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Telegraph reports Kraft met with Liverpool Chief Executive Rick Parry last weekend. The talks reportedly involved either diluting shares owned by major stockholder David Moores or naming rights for a new stadium.
