Billionaire Spotify CEO Daniel Ek has teamed up with Arsenal legends Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and Dennis Bergkamp in an attempt to take over the club.
The Swedish billionaire worth £3.4billion revealed his intentions last week to buy Arsenal amid furious fan protests following the club's involvement in the failed European Super league.

According to a report by SunSport, Ek is preparing to test Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke's resolve by making a takeover offer with the Arsenal legends as part of his takeover team if the bid is accepted.
Kronke, 73, is chairman of Kroenke Sports & Entertainment and joined the Arsenal board in 2008, and it is believed he is open to selling the North London giants for around £2bn.
The report adds that should Ek's offer be accepted by the American, Henry and Vieira as well Bergkamp would return to the Emirates as part of the new set-up.
Prior to Arsenal's match against Everton, Ek revealed his desire to buy Arsenal.
He tweeted: "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."
Ek launched Spotify in 2008, with the platform currently worth around £58bn.
