Champions League dream alive for Arsenal as Suarez deal dies

Arsenal took a giant stride towards the Champions League with a 3-0 victory over Fenerbahce in a qualifying round first leg in Istanbul.

But Luis Suarez will not be joining them at Europe's top table, after Arsene Wenger confirmed that a deal to sign the Liverpool striker was well and truly dead.

"[There is] absolutely no chance," Wenger told reporters in Turkey last night, with the Frenchman turning his attentions elsewhere.

Goal understands Arsenal are preparing bids for Real Madrid pair Karim Benzema and Angel Di Maria, with the Gunners willing to offer £35 million for the France international.

Meanwhile, former Liverpool and Real Madrid winger Steve McManaman told Goal Suarez is too good for Arsenal, but does deserve to play at the very highest level.
