Daniel Ek 'loves Arsenal' as update on takeover bid revealed via Sky - Campbell
Spotify billionaire Daniel Ek has been told to “put a consortium together” to buy Arsenal by Kevin Campbell.
The former Gunners and Everton striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, fears the 38-year-old does not have “enough money” to tempt Stan Kroenke into selling.
Ek tabled a £1.8billion bid for the north London club earlier this year and that offer remains on the table.
The owner of Spotify also has the full backing of Arsenal legends Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and Dennis Bergkamp.
On Monday, Henry told Sky Sports that Ek remains totally committed to the takeover of Arsenal but admitted he expects it “to be a long process.”
When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs for his assessment of the latest, Campbell said: “Listen, I want to own Arsenal.

“The bottom line is, Stan Kroenke does not want to sell the club. Unless you make him an offer he can refuse you can forget it.
“I would never disrespect a man like Daniel Ek. He is an Arsenal fan who loves the club and is willing to put his money where his mouth is which is great. However, I don’t think he has enough money to really make a difference.
“It is great that he is a fan though. Maybe he could put a consortium together.”
Speaking on Sky Sports, Henry said: “There’s no dialogue at the moment and I feel it’s going to be a long process.
“How long it’s going to be, I don’t actually know. But we’re here to stay.”
