Spotify co-founder and CEO Daniel Ek has said that his takeover offer for Arsenal was rejected by the club director Josh Kroenke.
Ek, the CEO and majority shareholder of Spotify, publicly declared his interest in buying his boyhood clubArsenal
last month amid fan protests against the current owners. However, Stan and Josh Kroenke have insisted in public and private that they would not consider parting ways with the Gunners despite Ek's willingness to make a great offer.
Two weeks ago Ek said he would make "a very compelling offer" to try and convince owner Stan Kroenke to sell the club.
Speaking to Sky's sister station CNBC, Ek said:
"I have secured the funds for it and I want to bring what I think is a very compelling offer to the owners and I hope they hear me out.
"I just see a tremendous opportunity to set a real vision for the club to bring it back to its glory."
Ek will have Arsenal legends
’s support in his bed.
