Simeone has no intention of leaving to manage Arsenal this season, according to Guillem Balague.

The journalist revealed that the have made no contact with the Argentinian who has been in charge of the club for eight years after taking over in 2011.

Balague shared on his personal Twitter account that Simeone has no immediate plans of moving to this year or even next season, with his immediate plans at Atletico.

It is suggested that the 49-year-old is in the middle of a transition phase at the Spanish club, and he would like to keep working on that in the future.

Is that the end of Simeone chase?

Not exactly.

There were recent reports by the Sun claiming that were close to sacking the South American after he had overseen a tricky period at the beginning of the campaign.

With many names being thrown in the air, any outcome remains possible and if Simeone was to leave the Spanish side then why wouldn’t Arsenal want to target him.

The 49-year-old has won the league title recently and that is something that has avoided the for many years, so he would bring the winning mentality that is so desperately needed in North London.

Simeone has a no-nonsense approach to management and Unai Emery was too much of a pushover in his reign at the Emirates, something that would change.

Should Atletico parts ways with the Argentine, Arsenal should go all out to try and secure his services as soon as possible.
