Usmanov edges nearer to Gunners takeover
Usmanov bought into the Gunners in August 2007, paying former vice-chairman David Dein around £75 million for his 14.65 percent stake.
However, Arsenal's board has a 'lockdown' agreement, meaning no director can sell their holding before April. After then, they are required to give each other first option on buying one another's stakes in the club.
