Arsenal’s legend Thierry Henry has talked about Ek’s intention to buy the Gunners.
The owner Spotify
is interested in buyingArsenal
and is willing to make a £1.8bn bid for the club, according to the reports.
Ek thinks that the offer will be good enough to make the club’s current owner
listen; he also has the support of Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira, and Dennis Bergkamp men, who played for the Gunners in their best days.
"I know a lot of people wanted to hear about [the takeover],"
Henry told Sky Sports on Monday Night Football
. "It is true. Daniel is an Arsenal fan, he didn't say it for any publicity. He is an Arsenal fan for a very long time.
"He already - I'll give you something - reached out [to the Kroenkes] and already said himself that he had collected the funds to make sure that he can put in a good bid.
"They now need to listen. A lot of people have been screaming that they want the owner out. We are trying to offer a solution involving the fans and getting the DNA of the club back.”
Despite his support for Ek’s intention of buying the club, Henry insists that the negotiations will not be easy or short and expects Daniel Ek to be working hard to get what he wants.
: "I think it is going to be long and not easy - if it does ever happen. One thing that I want to reiterate is that Daniel will not move away, he will be there waiting to see if they want to sell.
"That is going to take a very long time, we know what we want to do, but first and foremost we need to make sure that we can take over, if they are listening."
