Nigerian businessman Aliko Dangote says that he is interested in purchasing Premier League club Arsenal in order to boost the profile of his homeland.

The 58-year-old, who has amassed a £12.2 billion fortune since founding his own business in 1978, is the majority shareholder in an enormous company that supplies 90% of Nigeria’s 170 million population with flour, cement and sugar.

Meanwhile, he has attracted criticism for his reluctance to invest in Nigeria’s domestic league in favour of England’s top flight.
