Dangote Moves To Buy Arsenal


Africa's richest man Aliko Dangote, who has been vocal about plans to buy Arsenal football club has again spoken about his desire to purchase the club in 2020.


The business mogul who has an estimated net worth of $14.4 billion has reportedly reiterated his desire to buy the football club.

During the last five years, the 62-year-old has made separate claims, on no less than five occasions, about his want to lead an Emirates takeover.

Dangote, who is the 96th wealthiest man in the world, according to Bloomberg's Billionaire's Index, started his first business at the age of 21 and also founded Africa's largest cement provider, stated in 2018 his desire to make a move for the North London club in 2020.

"We will go after Arsenal from 2020… even if somebody buys, we will still go after it,” he told Reuters in 2018.
