Arsenal fans have taken to social media to praise Daniel Ek following a meeting with the Arsenal’s Supporters Trust, along with Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira.
The AST revealed on their official website that they have spoken with Ek, as well as the Arsenal legends, in the past few days ahead of a planned takeover bid of the club, which the Telegraph report could be made at the end of this week. The Swedish billionaire is keen on buying the Gunners off Stan Kroenke following the collapse of the European Super League.
Support and optimism is growing around Ek’s attempt to buy the club, with Arsenal fans desperate for the Spotify owner, and supporter of the club, to take over from Kroenke, who has been criticised on multiple occasions for his ownership of the north London side, and AST’s meeting with the Swede and consortium was well praised on social media.
Here’s what some fans had to say on Twitter about the meeting…

Brilliant to hear but I have a series of question which is still unknown which j believe many have on their mind. Which are: how is D Ek financing this take over ? Who is part of this consortium ? What model will D Ek self sustainable or will he he commit to future investment ?

Good read and I agree with everything that was said in this article

Good leveled response, everyone needs to take a step back and wait to see what Ek is really proposing, we don't know what Bergkamp, Henry, Vieira have been promised to pubically support Ek and we have no idea of his operational intensions.

Ek is expected to submit an opening offer of £1.8bn this week, with Arsenal fans living in hope that a bid will be accepted by Kroenke.
