International media reports say Stan Kroenke is set to take full control of Arsenal after submitting an offer to Alisher Usmanov which values the club at £1.8 billion.

Arsenal’s majority owner Stan Kroenke has had a bid accepted by the club’s second largest shareholder Alisher Usmanov to complete a full takeover at The Emirates, according to The Telegraph.

Kroenke has reportedly offered to buy Usmanov’s 30 per cent stake in a deal that values Arsenal at £1.8 billion and Usmanov has already decided to accept these terms.

Metro says Kroenke is currently Arsenal’s majority owner with a 67.09% stake, while Usmanov has a 30.4 per cent share but has never had a seat on the board or any say in the running of the club.

The Kroenke statement also say that Kroenke Sports Entertainment, a company wholly owned by Kroenke, has received an irrevocable undertaking from Red and White Securities - the company owned by Usmanov - to accept the offer for his 18,685 shares.

Usmanov, then, will receive around £540 million from Kroenke for his Arsenal shares. 

Usmanov's business partner Farhad Moshiri already sold his Arsenal investment in 2016 so that he could buy a 49.9 per cent stake in Everton.  There is now an expectation that Usmanov, whose wealth is estimated at $15.1 billion, may now join his friend at Goodison Park, says The Telegraph.

Alisher Usmanov (born September 9, 1953) is an Uzbek-born Russian business magnate.  As reported by Forbes, in 2017, Alisher Usmanov has an estimated net worth of $15.1 billion.  Usmanov built his wealth through metal and mining operations, and investments, and is the majority shareholder of Metalloinvest, a Russian industrial conglomerate, which consolidated in 2006 JSC Metalloinvest's assets (the Mikhailovsky Ore Refinery and the Ural Steel) with those of Gazmetall JSC (the Lebedinsky Ore Refinery and the Oskol Electrometallurgical Plant).  He owns the Kommersant publishing house.
