Ian Holloway has indicated a deal for Peterborough duo George Boyd and Craig Mackail-Smith has stalled.
The Blackpool manager has hit out at what he perceives to be inflated valuations of players in the game.
The outspoken manager has said he will not pay in the region of £4million for the two transfer targets.
Holloway was recently aggrieved at only being offered £3.5million for Charlie Adam, a player he believes should be valued significantly higher.
"We were only offered £3.5million for Charlie Adam. Peterborough want that for two lads who were in a team that got relegated from the Championship," said Holloway told the Blackpool Gazette.
"I don't mean that as an insult at all but I'm saying let's have a look at reality.
"They know we're a Premier League side but they don't know where my chairman [Karl Oyston] is. He likes to do good deals and are those players worth £2million [each]?
"Maybe they are, but who will buy them for that sort of price and what does that make Charlie worth?
"This is why it is so hard to quantify anything you own. Your house is only worth what someone will pay for it, not what an estate agent tells you."
