Peter Hill-Wood: No knowledge of a potential Arsenal takeover

Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood has denied any knowledge of a takeover of the Barclays Premier League club by interests in the Middle East.

American Stan Kroenke and Russian Alisher Usmanov are the major shareholders in the Gunners and Hill-Wood does not expect either to be keen to sell their stake.

Asked about a possible £1.5billion takeover, Hill-Wood told the Daily Star: "I have heard nothing and I don't think anybody knows anything about it at the club.

"It all seems a bit of a waste of time.

"If there is this consortium, they can't make any progress unless they attempt to get in touch.

"So I can't say if there is anything to it or not.

"But even if they did make an approach, my understanding is our two major shareholders do not want to sell."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
