Arsene Wenger says that he is "confident" that he can bring in his transfer targets to Arsenal before the close of the summer transfer window.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has claimed that he is "confident" of bringing in some new players to the Emirates Stadium before the close of the summer transfer window.

The Gunners, who are said to have £70m to spend, are keen on signing a new striker following their reported failed attempt to secure the signature of Gonzalo Higuain, who opted for a switch from Real Madrid to Napoli.

"We are working very hard to strengthen our squad," Wenger said in a press conference. "I am confident. You look at many teams around us. Nothing has happened until now.

"This team with financial potential as well. At the moment the market hasn't moved a lot. Apart from Man City, nobody has done anything."

The Frenchman has confirmed that Arsenal have not given up on signing Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, despite a rejected £40,000,001m bid.
