Talk show host and passionate Arsenal supporter Piers Morgan has spoken of his desire to buy into his favoured club so he can have his input and attempt to change their fortunes.
Arsenal have been struggling of late after Blackburn knocked the North London outfit out of the FA Cup last weekend before a Bayern beating in midweek essentially condemned them to another trophy-less season, and on top of the Cup set backs they sit behind fourth placed rivals Spurs in the Premier League table.
Morgan, who became a Gooner at six years-old to annoy his Dad who is a lifelong Spurs fan, firmly believes a departure of Arsene Wenger is necessary to restoring parity to North London and the 47-year-old is keen to invest so he can have his say at how the club is run.
He told The Sun newspaper:
I wouldn’t mind buying Arsenal, especially the way they are playing at the moment. I want Arsenal to be successful again. They haven’t been successful for a very long time and I am fed up with it.
If anyone follows my Twitter, (they know) I don’t agree with the club or the manager. Wenger has had his glory days.

We need to get someone new now who is fresh and who wants to win things. I take a very keen interest in them as a business and a football club. If the opportunity came around in the future to buy a stake or to be part of a consortium, I wouldn’t hesitate.
The media and fans are placing Wenger heavily in the firing line at present as another season begins to pass Arsenal by without silverware. Is replacing the Frenchman the priority? I think not, the AST’s stance is far more legible for now especially during the season but despite Morgan’s persistent negative outbursts he does have a point at times..
