Turner has been a long-term admirer of the prolific hot-shot and has been striving to lure Taylor to Hillsborough.
Taylor handed in a transfer request at Blackpool last week and is tempted by the prospect of joining The Owls.
But Blackpool do not appear inclined to accept any bids from Wednesday, with Turner acknowledging time is running out to conclude a deal.
"Not at all, no, but I can't wait forever," responded Turner to suggestions that he is on the verge of giving up on the transfer.
"At the moment we're in limbo with Scott Taylor. We've had offers turned down and even though he's said he wants to come, we've been on with him for six weeks and I need to plan for next season."
Turner does have other irons in the fire after agreeing a fee with Rangers over the weekend for young marksman Steven MacLean.
League One rivals Bristol City have also concurred on a price tag, with Turner hoping to discuss personal terms with MacLean this week.
He added to the Press Association: "We've agreed a six-figure fee and we're waiting to speak to Steve this week."
