Reports had claimed The Gunners were interested in signing the Argentine from Boca Juniors.
However, Roberto Di Pietri maintains he has not been contacted by the Premier League club about Palacio, who is still on holiday.
"I have said to Rodrigo that there isn't anything official," Di Pietri told Ole.
"Nobody has got in touch with me. Rodrigo still has a week of holidays and I have said to him to rest calm because what has been said does not exist.
"I don't have anything else to say about this subject."
With Palacio's agent dismissing the rumours there is mounting speculation that the entire story was a prank.
Fresh reports suggest the story began on a blog allegedly run by and on behalf of Boca Juniors supporters.
