Thierry Henry has confirmed to Sky Sports that Daniel Ek has “reached out” to the Kroenke family to present an offer to buy Arsenal.
Ek has written to Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke and is expected to make a bid of £1.8bn for the north London club before the end of the week.
“I know a lot of people wanted to hear about [the takeover],” Henry told Sky Sports on Monday Night Football.
“It is true. Daniel is an Arsenal fan, he didn’t say it for any publicity. He is an Arsenal fan for a very long time.
“He already – I’ll give you something – reached out [to the Kroenkes] and already said himself that he had collected the funds to make sure that he can put in a good bid.
“That is going to take a very long time, 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.” – Arsenal takeover
