Robbie Williams is part of a syndicate hoping to buy the most expensive Banksy for £10million

ROBBIE Williams is part of a syndicate hoping to buy what may become the most pricey Banksy.

Art fan Robbie, 46, is targeting Show Me the Monet, which is expected to sell for up to £10million at auction.

It is a pastiche of Monet’s The Water-Lily Pond from 1899 — with dumped shopping trollies and traffic cones beneath a bridge.

Singer Robbie collects contemporary works and owns some by elusive street artist Banksy.

A source said: “Robbie knows art’s a safe investment.

“He’s a major player in a syndicate of enthusiasts who are understood to be keen on it.

“It could easily break the record for a Banksy.”

The current Banksy record is for Devolved Parliament, depicting MPs as chimps, which sold for £9.5million last year.

The latest sale will be held online by Sotheby’s next month.
