Usmanov bid 'great', something has to change at Arsenal – Wright

Alisher Usmanov

Arsenal need the spending power of a billionaire such as Alisher Usmanov in order to move to the next level, says Gunners legend Ian Wright.

Uzbek-born Russian Usmanov has made a £1bn bid to take full control of the Gunners, but majority shareholder Stan Kroenke has shown no interest in it.

“He has put in the bid and it is great news,” Wright told BBC Radio 5 live.
