Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has backed his transfer hunt for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez and is adamant that he is doing things in a respectable manner for both parties and also for the player involved.

The Gunners were expected to be busy this summer after it was announced that the club had up to £70million to spend on new players this window, but after failing to sign several players, Wenger is yet to strengthen his side in a major-way.

Wenger has only been able to sign Yaya Sanogo on a free transfer from Auxerre and has failed to sign the likes of Gonzalo Higuain and Stevan Jovetic.

A summer clear-out as well has left Arsenal quite limited on the player-front with there being only 17 recognised first-team players in the squad at the moment.

Despite continously going for Suarez, Wenger has revealed that he believes he is doing nothing wrong in the market and he has admitted that any transfer he does, he will do in an 'amicable' fashion.

“There is nothing to add to what I said already about the transfer of Suarez,” Wenger said at a press conference in Helsinki. “If it will be done, it will be done in a respectful and amicable way with Liverpool.

“I didn't read [Liverpool owner John W Henry’s] statements but we'll be faithful to the way we want to behave.

“To make a transfer happen, you need the agreement of three parties - the buyer, the seller and the player.

“We know what we want to do. The player, if I look at the statements [does] as well. Liverpool at the moment do not agree. If they change their minds or not, I don't know. We'll respect that.

“We are looking at possibilities to strengthen our squad. Suarez is one of the targets. If he's not for sale, he's not for sale. We have to accept that.

“Every club has its own way of dealing with things, we have our way and we respect all the other clubs."
