The news comes after the fallout from the club's involvement in the collapsed and highly controversial European Super League.
The Gunners were one of six Premier League teams set to take part in the breakaway competition, which was announced on April 18, but began to fall apart two days later as English clubs began to withdraw amid pressure from fans, players, coaches and pundits from all corners of the sport.
Despite Arsenal's exit from the project, supporters protested American Kroenke's ownership of the club this week.
Hundreds of fans made their opinions known outside the Emirates Stadium ahead of their side's 1-0 home defeat by Everton last Friday.
An official announcement of a £1.8bn takeover attempt of the north London club could be launched 'within days', states ITV News.
However, it should be noted that Josh Kroenke, son of Stan, has already revealed they have no intention of selling.
Here, SPORTbible takes a look at everything we know so far.
Ek is a co-founder of Spotify and the music streaming platform's CEO.
As a kid growing up, I've cheered for @Arsenal as long as I can remember. If KSE would like to sell Arsenal I'd be happy to throw my hat in the ring.

The problems at Arsenal appear to be deep-rooted, with the three-time Premier League champions still aiming to recover from the departure of legendary boss Arsene Wenger in 2018.
And Ek's willingness to lead a period of positive change at the Emirates Stadium is likely to capture the heart of Arsenal fans in a way that the club's present owner has never managed.
As per the Telegraph's report, Arsenal greats Henry, Bergkamp, and Vieira - all part of the 'Invincibles' side of 2003/04 - are teaming up with Ek as part of the potential takeover.

KSE completed a takeover of Arsenal back in 2011, before taking full control in 2018.
Last week, Kroenke's son Josh - who is a non-executive director at Arsenal - said the club is not for sale.
As Ek expressed his interest in buying the club last week, the Arsenal Supporters' Trust said they "will support any potential purchaser who will allow fans to own a real equity stake and give fans a meaningful say in how our club is run".
The trust played a key role in making #KroenkeOut a top trend on Twitter last week.
