Emirates State of Mind : Jay-Z shows Arsenal Interest

Multi-millionaire and Hip Hop super star Jay-Z has indicated an interest in investing in English Premier League football side Arsenal.

Jay-Z has hinted that he may invest millions in Arsenal.

The rap superstar, married to Beyonce, already holds a stake in basketball's New Jersey Nets and may splash some of his estimated £500million fortune on the Emirates club after becoming a fan five years ago.

Jay-Z, born Shawn Carter, said: "I don’t know a lot about the business of soccer, but in the future if the right opportunity presented itself, then who knows? I am a businessman, and I will always look at an opportunity, and if it feels right great."

His confession comes just days after rap rival P Diddy was linked with an unlikely takeover at Crystal Palace.

The 10-time Grammy winner, whose other business interests include clothing line Rocawear, said he started following Arsenal "when Thierry Henry was at the club. I just thought he was an amazing player. Ever since then I have been a big fan of the club and still today you play the beautiful football that Thierry did. I think he had a real long term-effect on the team.
