Arsenal legend Thierry Henry says billionaire fan Daniel Ek wants to “re-inject the club’s DNA” in a takeover bid from owner Stan Kroenke.
Spotify co-founder Ek has said that he has the funds for £1.8bn purchase, with Arsenal Invincibles Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira getting involved to help.
But while American Kroenke has stated he is not willing to sell, Henry says it’s time for him to listen to the offer.
The Gunners’ all-tim top goalscorer says: “[Ek] wants to re-inject the Arsenal DNA, the identity that for me I think is long gone. Something that is very important about it is a lot of people have been screaming that they want the owner out – we are trying to offer a solution involving the fans and the DNA back of the club.
“I think it is going to be long and not easy if it does ever happen.
“We know what we want to do but first and foremost we need to make sure that we can take over, if they are listening.”
