Arsenal invincibles Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and Dennis Bergkamp have joined Daniel Ek’s bid to buy the north London giants.
It emerged over the weekend that the Swedish billionaire and founder of Spotify is interested in buying out the club’s American owner, Stan Kroenke.
And now reports from the BBC has claimed the trio of Arsenal legends are willing to join the entrepreneur in his bid to acquire the team.
Will Kroenke sell Arsenal?
Back in 2011, it seemed the Gunners’ fate was sealed after the Los Angeles Rams owner bought a controlling stake in the outfit.
It’s been downhill since then for the club, who have gone from Champions League regulars to struggling in midtable in the Premier League.
The fall from grace has been quite spectacular and with Arsene Wenger having been allowed to start and continually oversee mediocrity for so long without even a shred of accountability, there are questions to be asked of the American owner.
As a supporter of the club, you have to ask yourself, where are the Emirates Stadium giants heading under the current leadership of the 73-year-old?
Well, ever since Stan’s son, Josh Kroenke, was introduced onto the Arsenal board, there has been a growing interest in the day-to-day affairs of the Reds. However, as mentioned above, the club have only been going in one direction since then, and that’s downwards.
It seems the recent attempt and subsequent failure to sign the side up to the European Super League could well be the last straw with club legends Ian Wright and Henry very publically denouncing the ownership for their actions. And with the latest news over a possible bid to buy the outfit, it seems Kroenke’s time in N5 could be coming to an acrimonious end.
