Bolton boss Owen Coyle has ruled out making a double move for Juan Roman Riquelme and Ilan.
Reports have suggested Coyle was keen to sign the pair on free transfers following their departures from Boca Juniors and West Ham respectively.
West Ham have also been linked with a move for Argentine ace Riquelme, while Celtic have been credited with an interest in Brazilian forward Ilan.
Coyle, who has signed Martin Petrov and Robbie Blake this summer, insists he has no interest in either Riquelme or Ilan.
"It's rubbish. I've no interest in either of them," said Coyle when quizzed about the rumours.
OffersCoyle admits he has made offers for other players and he is also hoping to bring Arsenal starlet Jack Wilshere back to the Reebok Stadium on loan again.
Wilshere impressed during his stint at Bolton last term and Coyle is waiting to find out if Arsenal would be willing to loan him out again.
"We have a couple of offers here and there for different players and we await word on those," added Coyle.
"I've said all along, and I hope I am proved right - Jack will have a fantastic career and will be an England international.
"We'd love to have him on loan again, but ultimately that will be Arsenal's decision.
"So what we have to do now is see if the right type of players are out there, and it might mean investing some money."
