Spotify founder Daniel Ek has shown interest in buying Arsenal off owner Stan Kroenke, according to reports.
Billionaire businessman Ek tweeted that he was ‘happy to throw my hat in the ring’ to become Arsenal’s new majority shareholder upon seeing the north London protests which went down well with the Gunners faithful.
But The Telegraph claim Ek’s interest in taking over the Gunners is genuine and the Swedish businessman is prepared to make Kroenke an offer.
The same report claims the Kroenke Sports Entertainment (KSE) group would be listen to offers of around £2billion, but Ek’s individual net worth is estimated at around £3.4bn according to Forbes.
That would mean Ek would have to take control over Arsenal via a consortium or with a partner.
The 38-year-old launched Spotify along with co-founder Martin Lorentzon and the music platform is currently worth £58billion.
Kroenke, who is valued at just under £6bn, has been part of the Arsenal hierarchy since 2008 but fans have become increasingly frustrated with his lack of investment in the club.
