Swedish billionaire Ek claims Arsenal takeover remains alive

Swedish billionaire Daniel Ek claims his Arsenal takeover remains alive.

Ek reportedly had his £1.8BILLION bid to buy the club rejected by Stan Kroenke in May.

But The Sun says Ek is telling friends that a twist in a court case concerning Gunners owner Kroenke has increased his chances of eventually landing the club.

Billionaire businessman Kroenke and son Josh, who own a sporting empire in the US, maintain they do not want to sell up in North London.

Yet Kroenke, the NFL and other owners are being sued by the city of St Louis in a case which could cost over £700m in compensation.

And if Kroenke is forced to find that cash, Arsenal fan Ek is hoping he might succeed with his bid.
