GOOD MORNING ARSENAL FANS
Spotify co-owner Daniel Ek is keen to buy Arsenal Football Club but Kroenke Sports and Entertainment (KSE), who have come under fire following the European Super League chaos, have stated the club is not for sale under any circumstances.
However, the Mail reported that KSE were approached by an international financial consortium in 2019 and seemed keen on doing business back then.
Majority shareholder Stan Kroenke didn’t reject the approach outright, like he did with Ek, but instead told the interested party they would have to pay a fee in the region of £1.7billion.
Gunners legend Thierry Henry is one of three Invincibles who are backing the Swedish billionaire, along with Patrick Vieira and Dennis Bergkamp.
But Henry has warned fans that a potential takeover of the club will take a “long time”.
The club’s record goalscorer said: “We know what we want to do but first and foremost we need to make sure we can take over, if they are listening.
“Let’s see where it is going to go, he reached out. I don’t know now how far they went.”
In other news, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta looks set to stay after the end of the season following a turbulent campaign.
The Spaniard is also likely to receive extra transfer funds ahead of the summer transfer window.
That is because Kroenke is trying to ease tensions following some fiery demonstrations from club’s faithful, who are demanding his departure from the club.
