Sky Sports understands talks between Momo Sissoko and Crystal Palace have broken down.
We revealed on Friday that Sissoko had arrived in England and was holding discussions with Palace over a proposed move to Selhurst Park.
However, Sky Sports has learnt that the meetings have failed to bear fruit and now a number of rival Premier League clubs are set to take an interest.
It is understood up to four top-flight teams are looking at Sissoko, who is a free agent.
Sissoko left Paris Saint Germain last summer after finishing the previous campaign on loan at Fiorentina.
