The Guardian says Kroenke, the American billionaire who owns 12.19% of the club, is due to make an official visit to the Emirates Stadium next week, his first since last October.

And there are suggestions that a party representing Usmanov, the club's second-largest shareholder with more than 23% of the equity, will also be present. If the Russian billionaire attends the match in person it will be only his second visit. Arsenal's board are trying to persuade the two men to sign a "lockdown" agreement, forbidding share sales, but to no avail.
