Swedish billionaire and Spotify co-founder Daniel Ek has disclosed he would make a “compelling offer” to buy Arsenal from current owners.
Ek has already enlisted club legends Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira for help with a takeover bid.
However, the Kroenkes who are facing serious oppositions especially for their involvement in the failed European Super League, have already emphasised they would not be selling the club.
Speaking to CNBC, Ek said: “I have secured the funds for it and I want to bring what I think is a very compelling offer to the owners and I hope they hear me out.”
Ek, who used Twitter to express interest in a deal last Friday evening, says he is “very serious” with his takeover bid and wants to “engage the fans again” and bring the club “back to its glory”.
He has since revealed he would be open to having fan representation on the Arsenal board if he succeeds in buying the club.
“I just focus on the club, I focus on the fans and I focus on trying to bring the club back to glory,” added Ek, who was speaking after Spotify announced their first quarterly results on Wednesday.
“I am first and foremost a fan, that is the most important thing for me. I want the club to do better. That is my primary interest.”
Meanwhile, it is not known how much Daniel Ek, who co-founded Spotify in 2006 and is worth an estimated £3.2bn, is willing to bid for Arsenal.
