Wolves chief Nuno Espirito Santo declined to discuss any ties to Arsenal and insisted that he would be disrespectful to Unai Emery.
The 45-year-old was installed as a bookmaker favorite to replace Gunners pressure manager Emery at Emirates Stadium.
Nuno has taken the Sky Bet Championship Wolves to the Europa League since being named in May 2017.
Wolves are fifth in the Premier League, one point ahead of Arsenal, and have lost once in the last 13 games in all competitions.
Emery's position at Arsenal is under increasing scrutiny following Saturday's 2-2 draw with Southampton, which left them in eighth place in the Premier League, but Nuno was not indulged in speculation.
"You know me well enough and you know I won't answer that," he said ahead of Thursday's Europa League match in Braga.
"I would never mention an issue that is not a reality, especially since talking about a job that has a manager would be disrespectful and I won't do it.
“We're doing well, there's a lot of room for improvement, it takes a lot of work, but that's what we've been doing since the first day we started the championship.
“There are no distractions. I don't talk about possibilities, I don't talk about things that aren't real, what is real is that we are here, we have to train and prepare. "
