Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke says a deal for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez was always unlikely over the summer.

He believes it was a case of Liverpool not shifting from their stance on the Uruguayan.

"Look, Arsene (Wenger) had a view, our team had a view, they had a view and their view was, he wasn't going anywhere," Kroenke told the Daily Telegraph.

"I never saw them waver from it. I guess at some level there is a number that gets anybody out of anywhere but there was nothing within the realm of what we knew about that could have got him out of there."
