SHOCKER! Kroenke rumbled to not paid penny into Arsenal in FIVE years, but Abramovich...

Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke hasn't dipped into his own pocket to help the club's transfer work in over five years, it has been revealed.

The Swiss Ramble reports Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke has invested absolutely nothing into the club in recent years.

The investigation covers all 20 current Premier League clubs going back to the start of the 2014-15 season.

And while Chelsea have seen £440million poured into the club by Roman Abramovich, Arsenal have received precisely zero pounds.

The report confirmed: "Arsenal received no funding in last 5 years, either from Kroenke or the bank.

"In contrast, they made £101m payments (debt £40m & interest £61m).

"Also paid KSE [Kroenke's company] £6m for 'advisory services'."

Incredibly, 13 clubs have all been given money to spend by their owners, with seven of those being given £100m or more.

Even Brighton, Fulham and Aston Villa have all been handed more than £150m to play with.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are forced to sell big-name players before they are able to buy.
