Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has confirmed his interest in Argentinian striker Mauro Boselli but would not be drawn on whether an offer has been made.
The 25-year-old Estudiantes frontman has also been linked with Sunderland and Birmingham, but reports in South America suggested the Latics had agreed a club-record fee.
But Martinez told the Wigan Evening Post: "At the moment, everything is still up in the air with that one."
He added: "It is true he is a player we have been following for a long time, but I can't confirm anything regarding an offer.
"Over the next few weeks we hope to finalise a few things with the players we have been trying to get. Mauro is one of a number of names that will come out because we have been following a lot of players."
