Africa richest man, said he will turn his attentions away from Arsenal and buy another football club, if Stan Kroenke makes it clear he will not sell to him.
Aliko DANGOTE from Nigeria, is an Arsenal fan worth a reported £8.5 billion and has never hidden his desire to one day take over at the north London club.
In recent years he has made several statements about launching a future takeover bid, announcing he will make his move once he finishes building one of the world’s largest oil refineries in Lagos, Nigeria.
He said “We will go after Arsenal from 2020, even if somebody buys, we will still go after it,”
That comment followed on from a statement he made in August 2017 where he made it clear he believed he would be able to tempt Kroenke into doing business.
“If they get the right offer, I’m sure they would walk away,’ he said. “Someone will give them an offer that will make them seriously consider walking away.
