Earlier this month, DeGale said that he would be prepared to put his IBF super-middleweight title on the line against his long-time rival, but Groves has insisted that he is only focused on a meeting with Chudinov.
Groves is currently entitled to a clash against the Russian for the WBA title and while he hopes to earn a second professional win over DeGale later in his career, he has played down the efforts of his fellow Brit to try to entice him into a bout in London.
The 30-year-old told Sky Sports News: "It's been mentioned a few times. I think the best of five has been branded around. Already posters getting made up. It will be a great fight.
"I'm only going to concentrate on what I know is in front of me and that's Chudinov, and that's the WBA title, which is perfect for me.
"I had a long, hard slog last year, worked hard to grind myself into this situation. Once I win that, then there are huge fights out there to be made, but never rule anything out. I've learned that in my few years of boxing."
