Spotify co-founder and Arsenal fan Daniel Ek has nailed his colours to the mast ahead of the final day of the Premier League season. The Swedish billionaire has made attempts to buy the club he supports in the past but will be watching on in hope along with millions of Gunners on Sunday.

Arsenal know they must beat Everton at the Emirates Stadium in order to have any chance of lifting the trophy, while Manchester City start the day top and can only be certain of a fourth title in a row with a victory themselves against West Ham. Anything but three points for Pep Guardiola's side will leave the door open for Arsenal and Mikel Arteta.

It could be the crowning moment of Stan Kroenke's ownership as the turnaround from a maligned owner continues. Just three years ago, there were protests against the American and calls for him to sell the club.

Now, with his son Josh acting as co-chair and a new structure in place coinciding with Arteta's success on the field, Arsenal are one day away from being champions again. It would be the first time in 20 years that they have won the league. Such has been the wait.

In that time, Ek has founded Spotify, become one of the richest men in the world, and made a play to buy the club. Taking to Twitter/X on the final day, he made his feelings clear.

He simply posted a red heart emoji along with the link to 'The Angel - North London Forever' on Spotify. The song is played before every home game for Arsenal and has been part of a much louder Emirates Stadium atmosphere in the last two years.

Ek will be hoping that his faith is well-placed, having predicted Arsenal to come in with a shout before the season kicked off. "Well, obviously, I will say Arsenal, finishing second - looking really good for next season," he said last summer when looking ahead to the campaign. "So I think it’ll be between Arsenal and City again, with Liverpool maybe in fourth, unless there will be some key signings."
