Former Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich was ready to buy Arsenal, while he also tried to sign Thierry Henry, revealing a new book on the Blues.

‘The Club’ is written by Wall Street journalists Joshua Robinson and Jonathan Clegg.

The Sun reports the book claims that in 2003, Abramovich hired Swiss bank UBS to look at the economics of top-flight football clubs in England and was told that Arsenal were ‘categorically not for sale’.

It later states that former Arsenal vice-chairman David Dein believes the club’s owners would have cashed in if Abramovich had came calling with a serious offer for the Gunners.

It is also claimed the Russian oligarch met with Tottenham’s owners and tried to lure Thierry Henry to Stamford Bridge when the Frenchman was in his Premier League pomp.

Instead, Abramovich ended up on the other side of London and bought Chelsea in a reign that would last 19 years.
