Atletico Madrid refuse to consider Jose Gimenez’s sale this month.
Marca says despite interest from the likes of La Liga rivals Real Madrid and Premier League heavyweights Arsenal, there has yet to be a concrete offer tabled for Gimenez.
Arsene Wenger has turned his attention to the centre-back after failing in his efforts to shore up his side’s defence by luring Shkhodran Mustafi from Valencia.
Atletico, however, are unwilling to part with Gimenez and are planning to rebuff any approaches unless their hand is forced by a club triggering his 65 million euro release clause.
