Daniel Ek sets the date for Arsenal takeover bid as Thierry Henry issues an update amid firm KSE stance.

Daniel Ek sets the date for Arsenal takeover bid as Thierry Henry issues an update amid firm KSE stance.

Spotify co-founder Daniel Ek is poised to secure an offer to buy Arsenal this week.

Arsenal supporters have presented their reactions towards ownership group KSE and Stan Kroenke very clear in recent weeks, especially on the back of The Super League fiasco.

Kroenke put Arsenal forward as founding members of the new ESL competition, which collapsed just within 48 hours after being announced amid sharp criticism.

That proved to be the final straw for many Arsenal supporters, and thousands later demonstrated against the current owners outside the Emirates Stadium.

And on the back of that, there was fresh optimism for fans after Spotify co-founder and Swedish billionaire Ek announced his interest in the club he has supported since a boy.

Ek has teamed up with Arsenal legends Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira to begin a takeover bid, and Sky Sports report there will be an official offer of £1.8billion by the end of this week.

That’s understood to be around £200million under the current value of Arsenal, and KSE don’t appear to be interested in selling up.

A recent statement read:

“In recent days we have noted media speculation regarding a potential takeover bid for Arsenal Football Club. We remain 100% committed to Arsenal and are not selling any stake in the Club. We have not received any offer and we will not entertain any offer.
“Our ambition for Arsenal remains to compete to win the biggest trophies in the game and our focus remains on improving our competitiveness on the pitch to achieve this. Stan Kroenke and Josh Kroenke Kroenke, Sports & Entertainment.”

Speaking about the bid to Sky Sports on Monday night, Henry said:

“He (Ek) wants to reinject the Arsenal DNA, the identity that’s gone.

“You don’t have Arsenal people there among the board that can sometimes show the right direction and that is what Daniel wants to do.

“Daniel is an Arsenal fan – he hasn’t said that for publicity, he has been an Arsenal fan for a long time.

“We listened to him. When we knew first and foremost that he wanted to involve the fans, we actually met the Arsenal Supporters’ Trust and told them what we wanted to do; bring them back on board.

“He already said he collected the funds so he can make sure he can make a good bid. Now obviously they need to listen and see what they can do.

“Something that is very important about it, saying they want the owner out, we are trying to offer a solution of having the fans as the DNA back of the club.”
