Caballero has become hot property since having his contract cancelled by cash-strapped Dundee earlier in the season.
A host of clubs have expressed interest in the forward, with Portsmouth and Derby handing him trials earlier in the year.
Caballero has expressed a desire to remain in Scotland, but his wage demands have priced him out of a move to Aberdeen.
"Any hope of a deal for him being resurrected has been killed by his wage demands," said Paterson.
"Caballero's agent made it clear he would not drop them to a level we could afford so I no longer see him as a realistic target.
"You would also have to question how committed a player would be if money is the only reason he would want to come to this club."
