La Liga heavyweights Atletico Madrid have no intention to sell Croatia defender Sime Vrsaljko in January.
The 25-year-old former Sassuolo defender only played 16 La Liga matches for Colchineros since his arrival in 2016, but Diego Simeone is eager to hold on to his services despite the increased interest from various clubs.
Napoli are said to be leading the chase for Manchester City and Arsenal target who is eyed as a perfect replacement for injured Faouzi Ghoulam over at San Polo.
Sky Sports Italia have reported that Partenopei president Aurelio De Laurentiis made a personal approach with Atletico Madrid directors in effort to land the Croatian international but his inquiry was rather unsuccessful.
Los Colchineros have sent a negative answer and issued a hands-off warning to all the clubs who would be keen to land the talented shot stopper this winter.
Sime Vrsaljko is under a five-year contract with the Spanish giants.
