Gunners legend confirmed Ek will 'definitely' make new bid for Arsenal

Wed 26 May 2021 | 10:50

Spotify founder Daniel Ek flopped in his first attempt to buy Arsenal from the Kroenkes, but it is claimed that he has not given up yet.

Patrick Vieira, along with former Arsenal stars Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry, backed the Swedish billionaire after an official offer was made to the club, which was rejected by the Americans.

Vieira told 

ITV

: "

Yeah, he's definitely going to try again, he's going to be there for quite a long time. He's a massive Arsenal fan - talking to him a couple of times, his desire and commitment to Arsenal would be fantastic.

"If the club is not for sale then there is nothing he can do, but he's going to wait, he wants to buy the club.

"It would be really important because Arsenal is in a critical moment, and for me it is important for him to do his maximum to buy the club, because in the last couple of years they have not taken the right direction and it is time for a change."

Bergkamp added:

"After I left the club I always kept in touch with Thierry and Patrick, and of course I continued to watch the games. Just like Patrick and Thierry, I recognise the Arsenal from our own time less and less.

"The ambition to win top prizes is in Arsenal’s DNA. Never accepting to lose. That mentality has slowly disappeared. I sense resignation about the current situation. That is serious. As if, given the financial situation, it is normal for Arsenal to end mid-table. That does not belong to this club. Arsenal’s DNA must be restored
