Enrique Cerezo says he is not pursuing the duo, Fernando Torres or Jose Callejon, and insists his side have received no offers for Miranda

Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo claims his side are not currently pursuing deals for Premier League trio Santi Cazorla, Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez and Fernando Torres.

All three attacking players have been heavily linked with the Spanish champions in recent weeks as they look to reinvest the funds from the sales of Diego Costa and Filipe Luis, with coach Diego Simeone admitting Mexico international Chicharito was "a great option".

Cerezo, however, has poured cold water on any imminent approaches for the England-based trio and Napoli winger Jose Callejon.

"Many names have been said, but Cazorla, Torres, Chicharito, Callejon - none of them are on our agenda," he told Radio Marca.

Reports have emerged to suggest Chelsea could be plotting a move to take Miranda to Stamford Bridge this summer, and while Cerezo has rubbished the rumours, he admits players could be tempted to leave the club should significant financial offers be forthcoming.

"I have no idea about any offer, and if I've not heard anything it's because he is going to stay, I'm sure of that," he added. "Koke preferred to stay, that's clear. If a player wants to leave, it's not becaue he is not comfortable here, it's due to financial reasons."
