Richest man in Africa Aliko Dangote makes huge Arsenal takeover statement



Nigerian businessman is on the Forbes rich list and has made no secret of his desire to buy Arsenal in the past. He has made another statement outlining his plans to takeover from Stan Kroenke
Aliko Dangote has admitted that he is planning to buy Arsenal Football Club.
The Nigerian billionaire - the richest man in Africa - has made no secret of his desire to take over the north London club in the past and has made several statements about launching a future takeover bid in the past.

And the 62-year-old Gunners supporter, who is at number 136 on Forbes' rich list, has been speaking up a move for the club again.
Dangote owns nearly 85% of the publicly-traded Dangote Cement through a holding company. He also owns stakes in publicly-traded salt, sugar and flour manufacturing companies.
According to Forbes the Dangote Refinery has been under construction for three years and is expected to be one of the world's largest oil refineries once complete.
And it is that project that is keeping the billionaire from making a move to buy Arsenal from Stan Kroenke right now.
Speaking in 2018, Dangote said that he wanted to buy Arsenal this year.
He said back then: "We will go after Arsenal from 2020, even if somebody buys, we will still go after it."
