Rumours that the British property development company could be about to snapped up in a takeover bid were back in play on Tuesday.
At the moment an unnamed Middle East sovereign wealth fund is thought to be a possible buyer, with the Independent suggesting a potential bid could be worth up to 650p a share.
It’s not the first time Hammerson has been linked to a take-over this year, with Australian property giant Westfield also recently cited as a possible buyer.
