A group led by Spotify owner Daniel Ek and including three former Arsenal players is planning to bid on buying the club from Kroenke Sports Enterprises. 

Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira are in solved in the move.

a formal offer tabled within the next two weeks although it is unclear at this stage what valuation they are placing on Arsenal.

In a message posted on Twitter, Ek said: "As a kid growing up, I've cheered for @Arsenal as long as I can remember. If KSE would like to sell Arsenal I'd be happy to throw my hat in the ring."

Forbes estimates the Gunners are worth just over £2 billion. Ek is worth an estimated £3.4bn and would have little problem raising the funds necessary to buy the club.
