Spotify owner Daniel Ek says he is prepared for a «long journey» with his bid to buy Arsenal and will present «a very compelling offer» to try and persuade the Kroenke family to sell up.

Swedish billionaire, who has enlisted the support of club legends Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira, is expected to submit his first offer – in the region of £1.8 billion – in the next few days.

Ek said: «I have secured the funds for it and I want to bring what I think is a very compelling offer to the owners and I hope they hear me out.»

The Kroenkes, whose ownership came under renewed opposition following the club's participation in the failed European Super League last week, insist they «will not entertain any offer».
