Swedish businessman Ek has brought Arsenal legends Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira together to help him with his bid, with reports claiming the Kroenke value the club at £ 1.8 billion.
The Kroenke family released a statement after Everton’s protests that they do not cherish the idea of selling Arsenal, although it has been revealed that the Premier League club has actually been up for sale for the past two years.
Arsenal all-time record goalscorer Henry says the Spotify founder, who claims to be an Arsenal supporter, wants to improve fans’ engagement with the upper echelons of the club.
