Russian tycoon Usmanov bites bigger piece of Arsenal's cake
Mr Usmanov first bought into the club's assets earlier in August when he purchased Arsenal’s former vice-president David Dein’s 14.65% stake.
The Russian businessman says he intends to increase his stake at Arsenal further.
Acquisitions made by Mr Usmanov have been drawing media attention recently. A few days earlier he bought an arts collection, acquired over a period of 30 years, to decorate the homes of cellist and composer Mstislav Rostropovich and his wife, the soprano Galina Vishnevskaya.
And in early September he purchased the copyrights for a collection of Soviet cartoons made by Soyuzmultfilm studio from the U.S. Films by Jove company. Mr Usmanov donated the collection to a new children’s’ TV channel.
