Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes the Gunners will be in the title race with or without summer target Luis Suarez, as reported by Sky Sports News.

The North London club have lodged a second bid for Suarez who appears desperate to leave Anfield after the club failed to qualify for Europe last season.

The Uruguayan will stay on Merseyside according to Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers but Wenger has other ideas.

The Gunners boss has finally revealed that a bid has been made for the talented yet controversial striker although he is confident of a title push regardless of the transfer.

“Yes, of course. I am confident. Why should I sit here and say to you we can absolutely not win the title with the players we have?” said Wenger

“I never said we have made a bid to Liverpool, now I can tell you we have made one, so at least that is some information. All the rest, I would like to keep to us,”

“If we progress in that situation, we will inform you. At the moment, that is where we are. We will treat every transfer with the rules we have always done until now, that is in a fair and respectful way.

“We have one month in front of us and we will work very hard to strengthen our squad, without naming any specific names, because I do not believe that will make negotiations easier.

“When you want to buy any player you need the agreement of the club, of theplayer and you need to agree a price, so you need three agreements.

“What is important is we focus on the players we have, that we are not too much drawn into these stories.”
