Cristian Pavon's agent has denied that Arsenal have made any offers for his client and insists the winger intends to remain at Boca Juniors.
Arsenal have previously made enquiries over Pavon in the January transfer window during his breakout campaign in the Argentine Primera Division.
But Pavon's agent Fernando Hidalgo insists the Gunners have made no new approaches for his client following his showing with Argentina at the World Cup.

'There is still nothing official from Arsenal,' Hidalgo told Radio La Red. 'Pavon informed Boca's hierarchy about his desire to stay and pay in the Copa Libertadores.'
Pavon featured in all four of Argentina's matches at the World Cup as they were dumped out by France in the round of 16, losing 4-3 in Kazan.
The 22-year-old started the France match, playing 75 minutes, after three substitute appearances in Argentina's three group-stage games.

Boca president Daniel Angelici previously revealed his prized asset Pavon has a buy-out clause installed into his contract with the Argentine giants.
Arsenal have already made three signings this transfer window - Stephan Lichtsteiner, Bernd Leno and Sokratis Papasthopoulos.
