Now Arsenal want a multi-club network

Following news that Chelsea new co-owner Todd Boehly wants to follow the example of the City Football Group and Red Bull in establishing a multi-club network, it has emerged that that Arsenal have similar ambitions.

The Kroenke family, who also own the current NFL champions The Los Angeles Rams, MLS side Colorado Rapids, Denver Nuggets in the NBA, and Colorado Rapids in the NHL have explored the possibilities of acquiring clubs in Belgium, Brazil and Portugal.

The logic that that they would serve as feeder clubs of Arsenal, and also provide places  to send young talent on loan to help them develop more quickly, whilst there would be a cross-fertilisation of coaches and analysts.

It would also have commercial advantages in helping spread the Arsenal brand, whilst the smaller clubs would get a level of financial investment and support they would not otherwise have enjoyed.

Plans are reported still to be at an early stage.
