The African billionaire surprisingly announced his great desire to buy the London giant

Arsenal can finally see a change of ownership of the club from the current owner that they don't like - with billionaire Aliko Dangote interested in buying the club, goal.com (1/15/2020).



The Gunners fans have voiced a lot that Stan Kroenke left for years after - what they saw - as a lack of investment in the squad.

The troubled North London squad requires a reshuffle of troops, with them lying tenth in the Premier League standings.

The future looks a little brighter, with Mikel Arteta coming to take over as boss of Unai Emery and already showing signs of progress.

But with the starting XI ailing and a squad full of dead wood, Arsenal need a huge investment in the upcoming transfer window.

And Dangote could be their savior, with Africa's richest man - a staggering £ 7.7 billion worth - making his takeover intention clear.

He said: "This is the team I want to buy one day, but I keep saying that we have a $ 20 billion project and that is what I really want to focus on."

"I bought Arsenal when I finished all these projects, because I tried to take the company to the next level."

So what is the formation of the sultan-level Arsenal in the era of the African trillionaire? The following estimates are according to thesun.co.k (1/15/2020).

Bernd Leno has proven time and time again that he is the No. 1 reliable, with two full-backs Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney still young and experienced at the highest level, and do not need to be replaced.

But a new center back needs to be bought, with John Stones from Manchester City and RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano on their top list.

Granite Xhaka will leave and Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi will be relied on in the middle, plus midfielder Lille Boubakary Soumare who is also interested in Manchester United and Chelsea.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has proven to be the best North London player in the past four years, but is over 30 years old.

He had to leave, along with Alexandre Lacazette, but Nicolas Pepe and Reiss Nelson were more than good enough in the wings.

That makes the central attacker's role a must, and who is better than the £ 257 million megatransfer for PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe?
