Arsene Wenger has £50millon sitting in his transfer kitty.

And Gunners fans who have done the maths want to know why he has not spent it.

The Arsenal Supporters’ Trust are demanding answers from club owner Stan Kroenke and the Emirates board as Wenger makes it seven seasons without a trophy.

At a lively AST meeting last night, members asked if Wenger was held back from spending last summer and in January because of fears Arsenal would not qualify for next season’s Champions League.

They also wanted to know why North London rivals Spurs are so far ahead despite having a 40 per cent lower wage bill.

Fans fear failure to secure a top-four spot will lead to playing budgets being slashed.

Arsenal are expected to announce pre-tax profits of about £45m — boosted by the sales of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri.

The club insists it is Wenger’s choice to spend on players.
