Jay-Z wants place on Arsenal board

Table of Contents
American rapper Jay-Z is still keen to invest his money into Arsenal and insists he will have to play an active role in the club if he's to clinch the deal.

The rap legend has previously spoken of his interest in becoming a major shareholder in Arsenal, as he's became a big fan of the sport in the last decade.

And Jay-Z - real name Shawn Carter - would even move to London so he could be "involved in the decision-making" alongside chairman Peter Hill-Wood.

He said: "We would have to spend much more time in London. Bey knows how much I love sports and has known about my interest in Arsenal for a while.

"I never want to be a back-seat investor. I want to be on the board, involved in the decision-making. I'm at the stage of my career where I am ready for another investment like this.

"I have really got into soccer over the last 10 years and I've been saying for some time I want a percentage of Arsenal."
