Stan Kroenke increases Gunners ownership after buying more shares

Arsenal majority shareholder Stan Kroenke has purchased two more shares in the club.

It strengthens his grip on the Gunners, as they bid to try and get back to challenging for the Premier League title again next season.

It has been a decade since they got their hands on the trophy, and Kroenke, along with the rest of the Arsenal board, will reportedly back Arsene Wenger with funds to try and fund a title charge this summer.

They are still very much in the hunt for second spot, despite Sunday's goalless draw with champions elect Chelsea.

Kroenke has backed Wenger to stay at the helm at the Emirates in the past, and the side's impressive second half to the season will see him get another crack at the whip next term.

His case will be strengthened further, should they land their second successive FA Cup against Aston Villa in the final next month.
