Spotify Founder Wants to Buy Arsenal

Arsenal Football Club already have a potential buyer amid recent protests over Stan Kroenke’s position at the club.

Stan Kroenke has rarely been popular figures at the Emirates Stadium, but they have reached a new low with fans since they decided to make Arsenal one of the 12 founding members of the National Super League.

The decision caused rage from supports, leading to them pledging to back out, but on the back of the incident, there are fresh calls for the Kroenke’s to walk away with a protest taking place on Friday night after a loss to Everton.

It was during that protest, that entrepreneur and billionaire Spotify owner Daniel Ek declared his interest in buying the club.

The billionaire tweeted: “As a kid growing up, I’ve cheered for @Arsenal as long as I can remember. If KSE would like to sell Arsenal I’d be happy to throw my hat in the ring.”

The Gunners have had a series of bad results with the Arteta side losing 13 games this season, as many as rival Manchester United have lost in their previous two seasons.

They sit at number 9 on the league table having played a game extra than 3 quarters of the rest of the teams.

The head coach Arteta has not been left out as supporters on Twitter called out for his removal with the #ArtetaOut hashtag.

They face Villareal in the UEFA Europa League this Thursday in a chance to redeem themselves and boost their confidence.
