Since the breakdown of the Super League, the fallout from supporters across the country of the Big Six sides has been vocal through protests and social media campaigns.

Daniel Ek’s Arsenal bid expected ‘within days’ as ‘deal moves quickly’

LONDON, ENGLAND – APRIL 23: Arsenal fans chant and hold placards during a protest against the club’s owner Stan Kroenke ahead of the Premier League match between Arsenal and Everton, outside Emirates Stadium on April 23, 2021 in London, England. The protest, which takes place amid growing discontent over the running Arsenal FC, was sparked by the club’s recent involvement in the European Super League. There was uproar from football fans across the country earlier this week when six major Premier League football clubs, including Arsenal, announced that they were to join the controversial “closed-shop” tournament.

From an Arsenal perspective, the club has seen a huge amount of backlash, specifically in the direction of their owners, KSE, which is headed up by the American Stan Kroenke.

Demonstrations were held on Friday calling for KSE to sell and leave. In response, it emerged that Spotify co-founder Daniel Ek was willing to throw his hat into the ring should a sale be possible.

The story developed further this morning when the Daily Telegraph’s Matt Law published a story confirming that the intent was indeed legitimate and in addition, Arsenal legends Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira were all on board with the Swede.

Accelerating Ek bid

The speed at which this story is moving has shown little sign of decelerating.

ITV have acquired information suggesting that a bid from Ek could occur in just a matter of days.

‘Swedish Spotify billionaire Daniel Ek is set to launch a takeover bid for Arsenal ‘within days’, teaming up with three of the club’s famous Invincibles – Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira.’

‘ITV News understands an official announcement of a £1.8bn takeover attempt of the north London club could come soon.’

Stay tuned for further updates as a bid for the club for the first time materialises since Alisher Usmanov’s £1 billion bid in 2017 to buy out the remaining 67% shares in the club.
