Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger confirms that he is still looking to add to his squad during this transfer window.

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that he is still keen to add to Arsenal's squad ahead of the start of the 2013-14 season.

The Gunners have seen two bids to sign Liverpool striker Luis Suarez rejected, with the manager claiming that he is not close to securing a deal for the Uruguayan.

Wenger told the club's official website: "What has changed recently is that in Europe, countries like France have bought some very talented players who would two or three years ago all have come to England. That makes the chase for talent very difficult.

"What we want is not a [big] name but a good player. The name is less important. What is important is the quality of the player. We want as many top players as we can but we have to focus on the players [already here] and develop them as well.

"In midfield you have plenty of candidates, there's a big fight in midfield. [Bacary] Sagna has settled in well as a centre back. We have a strong squad. We are there on the market trying to strengthen our team."

Since the transfer window opened, only former Auxerre striker Yaya Sanogo has moved to the Emirates Stadium.
