Asked if his chase of Suarez was over, Wenger says "yes. Absolutely no chance of that."

Arsenal have been criticised by their fans for signing only one player - young French striker Yaya Sanogo - in the off-season despite having increased cash resources this year.

After beating Fenerbahce 3-0 on Wednesday in the first leg of the Champions League playoffs, Wenger says "the transfer market starts for me now and a lot of activity will happen between now and 2 September."
