Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has stated the north London side are still pursuing Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

The Gunners have had two bids rejected for the 26-year-old Uruguayan striker - but Wenger has refused to give up on the wantaway striker. 

Arsenal made a £40million plus a pound bid in order to trigger a clause in Suarez's contract.

However Liverpool have claimed they only have to tell Suarez about Arsenal's interest rather than accept the bid.

Wenger said on the possibility of signing Suarez: "We will completely respect what Liverpool wants to do. 

"We want to [sign the player] if it is feasible in an amicable way.

"I am a great believer you have to keep as much confidentiality as possible, which is quite difficult in the modern world. 

"But we work very hard, not only on the case you name, but on other different cases."

Arsenal have only made one summer signing thus far, with French starlet Yaya Sanogo joining the club on a free transfer.

Wenger remains confident of adding to his ranks despite finding it hard to bring in new faces.

Arsenal's current stars are taking part in the Emirates Cup over the weekend, with the Gunners facing Napoli on Saturday and Galatasaray on Sunday.
