Invincibles including Thierry Henry & Dennis Bergkamp join Spotify founder’s bid to buy Arsenal

Henry, Bergkamp & Vieira join Ek

Arsenal fans around the world are waking up to exciting news this morning as Arsenal Invincibles Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and Dennis Bergkamp have supposedly joined forces with Spotify co-founder Daniel Ek in a bid to buy the club from Stan Kroenke.

Ek revealed during the day of the Arsenal protests on Friday that he would be willing to throw his hat into the ring should the American owner decide he was open to selling.

However, there had been doubts over whether the Spotify co-founder, said to be worth £3.4 billion, had the capacity to raise the necessary funds to convince KSE to sell.

They value the club at around £2 billion but it isn’t as simple as looking at Ek’s worth and believing he can then afford the club.

Despite being ‘worth’ more than the club valuation, Ek would need to raise the funds through the sale of assets which could prove difficult.

Invincibles to the rescue

With this difficulty in mind, to help Ek’s cause, supposedly Henry, Vieira and Bergkamp have joined forces in an attempt to help buy the club.

Granted, the trio are very wealthy individuals having earned excellent salaries throughout their playing careers and beyond.

With Henry going into punditry with Sky Sports before taking a similar path as Vieira into coaching, the income has remained high. Meanwhile, Bergkamp has also worked in coaching with Ajax but left his role in 2017.

However, it seems that this may be more of a stunt to help drive fan support of Ek rather than aiding in additional funds to help secure the club. Although, it could have the benefit of attracting other investors to form a consortium with Ek.

Only time will tell whether the bid can be successful but KSE are known for their stubbornness of not wanting to sell the club, with Josh Kroenke even saying he has ‘no intention’ of selling.
