Arsenal could be facing a takeover bid from one of the men who tried to buy into Liverpool last season, according to reports.

Mohammed Al Hashimi was set to take a 20% share in the Reds after persuading Sheikh Mohammed Al Maktoum to make a £450million bid for the Anfield club in December. That was unsuccessful, with Americans George Gillett and Tom Hicks winning with an improved offer, and now Al Hashimi appears to have his sights on the Gunners.

According to The Sun, the executive chairman of Dubai-based Zabeel Investments said: "I know the owners are very reluctant to sell but I see Arsenal as a very profitable club. Liverpool was an opportunity which does not come along every day but we have to move on."
