0509-paul-mccartney-everton-tmzSir Paul McCartney, don your shining armor for the home team ... fans of Liverpool-based soccer franchise Everton are BEGGING the Beatle to rescue their beloved club from looming disaster.

Paul -- a BIG Everton supporter -- is being lobbied to buy the 135-year-old Premier League franchise.   Fans have started a petition drive which is picking up steam -- 4,500 names so far.

Paul has the dough -- he's reportedly worth around $800 million. The team is going for $200 mil, which would clearly make a big dent in his wallet.

You can sign the petition here ... which means you're not really an American, because we don't care about soccer. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!
