WEDNESDAY APRIL 28 2021 WEATHER 47 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA THREE of Arsenals famed Invincibles have given their backing to a possible takeover bid of Arsenal by the co-founder of Spotify, although the owners insist that the club is not for sale. Dennis Bergkamp, Patrick Vieira and Thierry Henry, who was honoured yesterday as one of the first players to be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame, have lent their support to Daniel Ek, the entrepreneur worth 3.4bn, ($6bn) according to Forbes. The Swede, who has emerged as an intriguing figure in a suggested takeover, says that he has supported Arsenal ever since Anders Limpar joined them in 1990. Ek stated on Twitter he would throw his hat in the ring if Stan Kroenke were to put the club up for sale, but his limited involvement with club matters on the social media platform since he joined in 2007 has created scepticism. Over the past 14 years he has only twice tweeted about Arsenal and has never tweeted mentioning the word Gun ners and only once mentioned the word football. Furthermore he does not follow Arsenals Twitter accounts or any of their players. Henry, Bergkamp and Vieira, all part of the 2004 Invincibles team, are said, however, to have been convinced by his intentions. Arsenal are valued at about 2bn ($3.57bn). A source close to the players described Ek as extremely serious about a bid and a massive fan who even watches matches on his laptop during board meetings. Spotify, the music stream ing platform, was founded in 2006 and is now valued at more than 40bn ($71.35bn). Arsenals owners and directors have come under pressure from fans after signing up to last weeks disastrous attempt to establish a breakaway European Super League. But Kroenkes son Josh, a director of the club, told a fans forum on Friday that his family would keep the club. While Arsenal fans were protesting against the Kroenke family outside the Emirates Stadium on Friday, Ek tweeted: As a kid growing up, Ive cheered for Arsenal as long as I can remember. If KSE (Kroenke Sports & Entertainment) would like to sell Arsenal Id be happy to throw my hat into the ring. Tim Payton, a spokesman for Arsenal Supporters Trust, said any takeover should involve the fans, even giving them an equity stake. He said: We would expect one of their first conversations to be with the Arsenal Supporters Trust. Anyone serious about owning the club has to put the fans at the heart of any proposal.
