Ian Wright demands change at Arsenal

Arsenal legend Ian Wright urges fans to support Alisher Usmanov's reported £1bn takeover bid for the club.

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has called on the club's supporters to demand change amid reports of a £1bn takeover bid.

Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov is understood to have approached Stan Kroenke with a mega-money offer in an attempt to coax the majority shareholder into selling his stake in the club.

Fans have become increasingly frustrated with a relative lack of activity in recent transfer markets despite Kroenke's wealth, and Wright has now urged them to get behind Usmanov's offer.


Usmanov, who already owns 30% of Arsenal, is reportedly worth more than £11bn.
