An agreement for Marseille to sign Dimitri Payet from West Ham is still "miles away", Sky Sports News HQ has been told.
A senior source involved in talks between the clubs says no breakthrough has been made after another day of negotiations on Friday.
The Ligue 1 side had been hoping that West Ham's £10.2m signing of Robert Snodgrass from Hull would open the door for Payet's departure.
However the Hammers are still demanding at least £30m for Payet, while Marseille have indicated they will not pay more than £25m.
As well as a difference of opinion on the attacker's value, there are also significant disagreements over the structure of the deal.
Sky Sports News HQ has been told that "as long as the window is open it is possible that the deal will be done but at the moment it's still miles away".
Payet has been training with West Ham's Under-23 squad this week but, as expected, he did not play in their 0-0 draw with Aston Villa on Friday night.
