- Aliko Dangote has once again stated his interests in buying Arsenal
- The Gunners are struggling in the league as they sit tenth on the table after 22 matches
- Kylian Mbappe could lead the north Londoners attack once the takeover is completed
Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangote has reiterated his interests in taking over Premier League side Arsenal in the next few years.
The 62-year-old businessman has not hidden his interest in buying the north London club with major shareholder Stan Kroenke not ready to let go of the ownership of the team.
Mikel Arteta's men are currently sitting tenth on the English topflight table with 28 points from 22 matches so far this campaign.
According to SunSport, the future looks bright for the Gunners new boss should the Nigerian take over the club.
The publication claims Arsenal need a total squad overhaul and get rid of the tired legs in the team before meaningful progress could be reached.
Arsenal need massive investment in the coming transfer windows and Dangote could be their saviour with the Nigerian who is worth £7.7 billion.
The owner of Dangote Group said: "It is a team that yes I would like to buy someday, but what I keep saying is we have $20billion worth of projects and that's what I really want to concentrate on.
"I'm buying Arsenal when I finish all these projects because I'm trying to take the company to the next level."

Arsenal will have to invest in central defenders to complement the goalkeeper and the full-backs in a bid to become stronger according to SunSport.
While a couple of highly-rated midfielders and big money strikers who can deliver will push them back up to contend for titles in the coming seasons.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Aliko Dangote, Africa's richest man, has hinted at possible takeover of Premier League giants Arsenal, with the Nigerian business mogul declaring the takeover could happen in 2020 or 2021.
Dangote, a die-hard Arsenal fan, has been previously linked with the purchase of the club from Stan Kroenke — a deal that could gulp over $4 billion from his pocket.
But speaking with David Rubenste in show in America, the 62-year-old business mogul gave Nigerian Arsenal fans a sigh of relief after re-establishing interest in taking over the purchase of the North London side.
