Wenger told arsenal.com: "We have a team that can develop in the next four or five years.
"I feel we are in the process of turning Cesc Fabregas, Denilson and Abou Diaby into world-class players.
"It may not be so long before we are on top again. If you ask me if we have the potential to achieve success this year then I say 'yes without a doubt'. It is important not to relate only success with money.
"I feel we make superstars. We have a feel for the game and the way we want to play football is linked to development and therefore you have to take your time a little bit. If you find an extra special player then OK.
"But I have not seen a number of what you might call world class players. World class prices maybe but not world class players."
