Africa's richest man, Aliko Dangote insists he'll buy Arsenal Football Club

Africa's richest man, Aliko Dangote Dangote whom in 2010 first announced his interest in buying one of English' premier league football teams, Arsenal has said that he is still interested.

In an interview he did with Bloomberg while traveling in a private jet from Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa to Lagos on May 1, Dangote said he'll love to buy the club when the price is right ...

"I still hope, one day at the right price, that I'll buy the team. I might buy it, not at a ridiculous price but a price that the owners won't want to resist. I know my strategy." he reportedly said

Dangote who is worth $15.7 billion, could not buy the top club valued at $1.49bn in 2010 owing to the fact that he and owners of the club couldn't come to an agreement.
