Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists he's not shelved hopes of signing Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

Wenger was asked if he'd given up on Suarez after victory over Manchester City in Helsinki.

"No. We will do it the right way and see what happens.

"I think the problem is the strength of the squad. Today is one game we are going to play 55 games. We are maybe a bit thin squad wise to go through the whole season.

"The players now go on international duty and come back on Thursday so it will be very short time to prepare for our first game on Saturday.

"We have some big games in front of us. We play Aston Villa and then the Champions League after that so it's important we don't lose players now."
