Arsenal takeover: Ornestein speaks out on the possible Daniel Ek deal
Arsenal oracle David Ornstein has opened up on the possible takeover that has been hitting the headlines in recent weeks.
After news broke that Arsenal were set to be one of the 12 teams that would help found the European Super League, Gunners fans have been calling for the owners to sell up and leave the club as soon as possible.
And that has led to reports that Spotify owner Daniel EK is ready to make a substantial offer, worth £2 billion, to try and get the Kroenkes to sell the club and move on, but according to Ornstein, it is unlikely to persuade Kroenke one way or the other.
Ornstein said on The Athletic’s podcast: “What if the protests which are at the highest they’ve ever been among the Arsenal fan base right now, added to by the presence of legends, which has built some real momentum continues to gather momentum? What if those issues in the USA can take even more of their focus away from Arsenal,”
“Now, my hunch, from speaking to a number of people is that events of recent weeks – the protests and the Super League that never was – has actually emboldened or is likely to embolden and strengthen Kroenke’s resolve to keep hold of Arsenal.
“You wouldn’t imagine he would sell now, you might imagine he would have sold a couple of years ago when he took full ownership or he might sell in better times.
“What we’re hearing from Daniel Ek is that he’s here to stay, he’s not going anywhere despite the statement.”
Arsenal fans have help make the club who they are today and the fact that they want the owners out just shows that now is the right time to cash in and make a change, they are not wanted in London.
But can we see a takeover deal happening? Nope is the answer
