Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke and the family insist the club is not for sale at any price amid bids to buy the north London side.
Daniel EK, a Swedish Billionaire is expected to make a formal approach in the next seven days to Kroenke about the possibility of buying Arsenal. Spotify’s co-founder intends to test their resolve by pressing ahead with a firm offer but the club’s owners insist they will not sell the north London side at any price.
“In recent days we have noted media speculation regarding a potential takeover bid for Arsenal Football Club,” a statement, signed by Stan Kroenke and his son Josh, read.
“We remain 100% committed to Arsenal and are not selling any stake in the club. We have not received any offer and would not entertain any offer.”
“Our ambition for Arsenal remains to compete to win the biggest trophies in the game and our focus remains on improving our competitiveness on the pitch to achieve this.”
As reported by the Guardian, Ek has expressed interest in buying out the Kroenke’s on previous occasions, however, all attempts haven’t gotten anywhere.
On Friday, before Arsenal vs Everton game, more than 1,000 supporters gathered outside Emirates Stadium to protest against owner Kroenke’s role in the failed European Super League.
