Arsenal legend Winterburn urges club to find money as Arsenal in 'frustrating period'
- The former full-back admits Arsenal are way off challenging with other big clubs for the title.
- He is not sure if club intend to sign new players in summer.
"Obviously I don't know the nitty gritty runnings of the football club but looking from the outside it almost seems to me that Arsenal want to be a self-funding club and I'm thinking that if we want to get back to challenging Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United who are going to spend more money and Chelsea who will probably spend again then we're going to have find some money from somewhere," Winterburn told Love Sport Radio.
"But we're going to find ourselves in this frustrating period where we've made some progression but we're still a way off challenging for the title again."

Nigel doesn't think Kroenke will spend much money to add new players:
"Is the money there? That's the question we want to know because if you hear from the manager that we can only get a loan signing in January then that doesn't suggest to me that there is lots of money around," Winterburn added.
"Unless what they're saying is 'January is not the right time to go out and buy, let's see what happens and we'll be back in the market for the start of next season'. I could understand that. That would make sense. But we're not hearing that. It's a guessing game with Arsenal and we'll just have to wait and see."
