Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has given his opinion on the takeover bid led by Daniel Ek and admitted if he could help the Gunners in any way he would.
Wenger’s comments come amid widespread reports of a take-over bid from Spotify owner Daniel Ek with Arsenal legends Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira all involved.
While a deal still seems far from reality, momentum appears to be building and Wenger was asked to comment on the take-over bid on Tuesday evening.
“Personally, because I’m a footballer, I like the idea of former Arsenal players taking over and giving advice,” he explained on beIN Sports.
“The best deals I made were when nobody knew it, and you go out and it’s done. When you announce things, you have a mountain to climb after.
When asked if he would be ready to join the takeover, Wenger admitted he would be ready to help Arsenal if they came and called.
“Listen, I will always support Arsenal,” he said.
“If I can help Arsenal I will do it in any way. This is my answer. After that, I am happy with my life today.
“If I can help @Arsenal, I will too “

SL View – Would Wenger’s participation in a potential takeover be beneficial?
While Wenger is unwilling to comment on his own involvement in a possible takeover, the Frenchman would be a huge asset to any deal.
Wenger would bring a wealth of knowledge to the club, including his experiences as a manager at Emirates Stadium.
In a role of director of football, Wenger would not only provide Mikel Arteta with much-needed support, but his keen sense of talent could also be beneficial in the transfer market.
Understandably, Wenger wouldn’t want to commit to the idea of publicly joining the take-over bid, but his willingness to help Arsenal could be beneficial.
