Billionaire Aliko Dangote is again talking up the prospect of buying Arsenal.
Dangote, worth £8.3bn ($10.9bn), expressed an interest in purchasing the Gunners last year and has now set out a timetable for his takeover in an interview with Bloomberg.
Asked when he plans to buy the club, Dangote said: "Maybe three to four years.
"The issue is that we have more challenging headwinds. I need to get those out the way first and start having tailwinds.
"Then I'll focus on this."
Dangote believes he can turn the club into a trophy-winning machine.
"I've run a very successful business and I think I can also run a very successful team.
"Right now, with what we're facing, over $20 billion of projects, I cannot do both."
