The north London side's attempt to join the currently suspended European Super League particularly angered supporters, who were already unhappy with the stewardship of Kroenke.
It is unknown what effect it will have, with Kroenke's son, Josh, claiming that the family have no intention of selling while talking to a fans' forum earlier on the same day.
If the Kroenkes do decide to get away from the club, they may have an option to do so.
Spotify owner Daniel Ek made his interest in buying the club public on Friday, posting to Twitter that he would love to buy the team that he has supported since he was a child.
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.- Daniel Ek (@eldsjal) April 23, 2021
Supporters immediately encouraged Ek, desperate for change at the Emirates.
Please I will love you for ever and ever and ever:heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:- AubameBloodClatYang (@MagnusLanding) April 23, 2021
Go on up my subscription to buy em.- Wesley.C.AFC (@UKwez) April 23, 2021
Bro I'm begging you buy arsenal and I'll PayPal you £1.50- Luca (@lucasteer_) April 23, 2021
However, it was pointed out that this doesn't solve the problem, and instead puts their club at the whims of another billionaire. A popular idea to improve football ownership has been to give fans 50+1% ownership of their sides, as they do in Germany.
Moh of Arsenal Fan TV fame asked if Ek would be comfortable with that.
But would you let the fans own the 51%?- Moh Haider (@ArsenalMoh8) April 23, 2021
Arsenal lost 1-0 to Everton on Friday, with a Bernd Leno own goal giving the Toffees all three points despite a tight game between the two teams chasing European football.
