Arsenal chief Josh Kroenke is planning to increase the presence, involvement and investment of Kroenke Sports & Entertainment (KSE) at the club, according to reports.
The Gunners sacked Unai Emery and appointed Freddie Ljungberg as interim coach, but the change in management has failed to yield an upturn in results.
There board are yet to come to a consensus about who should take charge to replace Emery, with Massimiliano Allegri and Patrick Vieira just two of a host of names linked with the vacant position.
Arsenal appear to be in crisis, with fans calling for the board to be axed and new owners to be found for the London side.
KSE are sole owners of Arsenal and Josh Kroenke, son of Stan Kroenke, is a director on the board.
The Athletic claim the Kroenkes have no plans to step back from the club and Josh plans to be more involved in the running of the club, as well as sanctioning more investment.
Arsenal had a limited transfer budget to spend last summer, but still managed to sign Kieran Tierney, Nicolas Pepe and William Saliba for a combined £123million.
It emerged Emery’s top three transfer targets during the summer were Thomas Partey, Wilfried Zaha and Harry Maguire, but the board denied those requests and pursued alternative signings.
Pepe is the club’s record signing, although his £72m transfer fee is being paid in installements to Ligue 1 side Lille.
A section of Arsenal fans have urged the owners to sell the club, but KSE have no intention of offloading their sole ownership of the Gunners.
Kroenke does not want to scale back his company’s investment in Arsenal either and his long-term plan is to have the Gunners challenging for top honours on regular basis again.
