Thierry Henry has confirmed that Spotify co-founder and CEO Daniel Ek remains interested in finalizing the Arsenal buyout.
Ek was seen sitting next to the Gunners legend during the derby demolition against Tottenham Hotspur in the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.
The Swede has expressed interest in taking over the north London squad with tired supporters of Stan Kroenke and the way the majority shareholder has run the club.
Ek took to social media earlier this year to declare his interest in buying the club, saying: “Growing up I have been cheering on Arsenal for as long as I can remember.
“If KSE wants to sell Arsenal I would be happy to throw my hat in the ring.”
Despite seemingly silent negotiations, Henry confirmed on Sky Sports that he and Ek remain keen to make a deal for his former team.
“He’s here to stay (Daniel Ek), we’re here to stay,” he said. “We don’t know how long this will last.”
Ek reportedly offered £ 2bn to buy the club from Kroenke in April, taking to social media again to say his interest remains on the table.
He said: “Inaccurate reports have emerged that I have not made an offer for Arsenal Football Club. I think it is important to correct the record – this week an offer was made to both Josh Kroenke and their bankers which included fan ownership, board representation and golden action for supporters.
“They said they didn’t need the money. I respect their decision, but I remain interested and available if the situation should change. “
