Just over a week has passed since the uproar surrounding the Super League emerged, but talk of outing Arsenal’s owners Stan Kroenke / KSE continues to be a hot topic – the deep unrest is seemingly not going away anytime soon.
According to a report from Sky Sports News on Monday, the co-founder and chief executive of the world’s foremost music streaming service Daniel Ek, has thrown his hat into the conversation to bid for the club should KSE put it up for sale.
On top of this potentially huge news, Ek also wants to draft in legends such as Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira to be part of the process – a smart PR move to get fans instantly on-side.
Ek is worth around £3.38billion and has supposedly been a keen Arsenal fan for many years with his recent post confirming so;
As a kid growing up, I’ve cheered for @Arsenal as long as I can remember. If KSE would like to sell Arsenal I'd be happy to throw my hat in the ring.
