Diego Milito's agent claims Tottenham are no longer interested in signing his client.
The 29-year-old, who has scored 61 goals in three seasons at Real Zaragoza, is desperate to secure a summer move following the Blanquiazules' relegation last season.
Spurs had been linked with the Argentinean as a possible replacement for Manchester United target Dimitar Berbatov, but the Bulgarian could still stay at White Hart Lane.
Milito's agent, Fernando Hidalgo, had claimed that Spurs had made a tentative approach for the 29-year-old but had been put off by Zaragoza's £14million asking price.
"There's no concrete offer for Diego and I don't think there's going to be one in the next few days," Hidalgo told Diario Equipo.
"Tottenham was an option until today, but they are not anymore."
Hidalgo confirmed that Milito's Spanish employers were hindering his client's prospects of securing a move by pricing him out of the market.
"They are asking for an impossible price for a player of his age," he added.
"We are still hopeful an important offer will be made, anyway it's improbable to see him moving during the transfer window."
