Swedish billionaire Daniel Ek ready to launch a new Arsenal takeover bid worth more
than £2BILLION.after Spotify CEO’s £1.8bn proposals backed by Gunners, legends
was rejected by the Kroenke family last month
The tech guru launched his bid in the wake of the Super League collapse buy.
He claimed that under-fire Gunners owners the Kroenke family had told him that they
‘didn’t need the money when he tried to buy the club last time.
However, sources close to the Ek camp have disclosed that a second bid ‘north of £2bn’
is being readied and that they ‘are not going anywhere and want to get a deal done.
Club insiders have admitted they are waiting for a second offer.
An offer of an extra £300million may well test the Kroenkes’ resolve, despite an
insistence that the club is not for sale.
The US owners, led by Stan Kroenke, 73, who assumed full control in 2018, are very
unpopular with large sections of the club’s support.
Kroenke’s son, Josh, is a director at the club and a key figure in day-to-day operations.
Ek says he has been an Arsenal fan since the age of eight.
