Souness is keen to bring the Republic of Ireland international to Ewood Park, but will not pay over the odds for him.
Lions chairman Theo Paphitis has admitted that Reid would be allowed to leave if the price is right, but Souness revealed that both sides are far away in their valuations of the player.
"We made an offer for Steven Reid but their valuation and our valuation were very different," said Souness.
"That's not unusual in football. They're entitled to put whatever valuation they want on him and as the selling club they hold all the aces.
"But I'm not prepared to go beyond what we have offered already because we feel that's a fair price.''
