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.

According to the Telegraph, Spotify founder Daniel Ek's #Arsenal interest is genuine - and he is plotting takeover bid. https://t.co/SzomWTaJrb

Telegraph Sport understands Ek's tweet yesterday was not a public relations stunt & his interest in #Arsenal is genuine, with the Swedish billionaire ready to enter into negotiations & , ultimately, make Kroenke an offer.

Josh Kroenke has insisted his family are not looking to sell the #Gunners, but sources believe they could be tempted by a bid of around £2 billion. #Arsenal

Is there really anyone out there that's prepared to pay 2 billion for a football club

Not being funny with you, but I suppose it all depends how much money you have in the first place :rubchin:

Different reports estimate this guy's personal wealth at somewhere between £3bn-£4bn, and he is co-owner of a company worth £58bn (apparently), and even though £2bn is big money even to him, it isnt like he would have a net spend of £2bn because he would have a valuable asset on his books that he could sell down the line and recoup the majority of that £2bn. It also wouldnt be a reach to think that someone in his position would have associates or friends or others who would be willing and able to come in with him as an investor in a takeover.

The problem in this scenario is always gonna be kroenke, and I fear it will take a rebellion of massive proportions to force him out

I have a feeling that after the ESL malarky and a genuine threat to Stan's investment by Ek, kronekes will invest some of their own money in the team, and management. They must be able to see Arteta is not good enough, yet, to move this team forward. Even if he does manage to win the EL, we will suffer with Arteta in the CL.

Nothing in the history of Wiggy's sports team ownership points to that mate. He is not an ambitious win at all costs sports fan. He's a collector. A rich spoiled man that likes to point at things and property and say "I own that".

Wasn't he building a new stadium for his NFL franchise?
I think the whole ESL saga, might have made Josh Kroenke realise there is more money, more global attraction for "soccer" than the NFL, NHL and NBA combined. Having a successful "soccer" team franchise will be more valuable to them. The infrastructure of the club is already in place, having the right person in charge is the key to success.
The last 10 years we've made it to 8 cup finals, and two European semi finals. Finished runners-up in the league once and only fell out the top 4 3 seasons ago, and that is a poor decade by our standards. There are 88 other professional clubs that would die to achieve half of that. No wonder Kronekes won't sell. To them, making any final is like reaching a Superbowl final. The FA Cup final still attracts more viewers than the NFL's "biggest game in world".
