The founder of the Spotify music platform Daniel Ek positioned himself on Friday evening to buy Arsenal, in the event of the resale of the football club after the fiasco of the Super League project, carried by the Londoners and eleven other European teams.

"I have supported Arsenal for as long as I can remember," assured the Swedish billionaire on his Twitter account.

If (the current owner) Kroenke Sport Enterprises wished to sell the club, I would be happy to join the ranks. "

Present in the capital of the "Gunners" since 2007, the American businessman Stan Kroenke (73) has long been criticized by supporters for the failure of the club to win major trophies since his arrival.

Arsenal's involvement in the Super League project was also frowned upon by fans, although the initiative quickly turned to a fiasco in the face of public outcry.

On Friday, some 2,000 supporters demonstrated against the owner of their team of hearts ahead of the league game lost at home against Everton (1-0).

A possible entry by Daniel Ek into the capital of Arsenal would mark a new stage in the diversification of its assets.

In addition to Spotify, now listed in New York, the Swedish billionaire bought shares in electric battery producer Northvolt in September.

A few days earlier, he had announced that he wanted to invest a billion euros of his personal fortune in European “unicorns”, these start-ups which have exceeded one billion dollars in value.
