BEYONCE'S RAPPER LOVER IS AFTER A PIECE OF ARSE

JAY-Z'S FOOTIE BID

MULTI-MILLIONAIRE rapper Jay-Z wants to buy a stake in Arsenal Football Club.

The footie-mad fiance of Destiny's Child beauty Beyonce Knowles - worth an estimated £200million - is planning to invest in the Gunners after being turned down by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

He wants to part-own a London club because he loves the city and thinks Arsenal star Thierry Henry is "cool". Last night a source said: "Jay-Z loves football - he thinks the whole scene is very bling. He has also met Henry and thinks he is really cool."

Jay-Z and business partner Damon Dash sold their firm, Roc-A-Fella Records, for more than £180million in July. He still owns the hugely successful Rocawear clothes label as well as a vodka firm and a film production company. He gave Beyonce a £1.2million diamond and ruby ring for her 24th birthday in September and the couple are said to be planning to marry before Christmas.

Last month the couple flew to London and had a secret meeting with Abramovich. The source added: "Jay-Z is a man who gets what he wants - and he wants a portion of a Premiership club.

"He and Roman got on really well, but he wouldn't dilute his shareholding of Chelsea.

"So Jay-Z's looking at other clubs, with Arsenal top of his list."
