Parma defender Benalouane failed to agree Fulham contract terms
A swap involving Philippe Senderos moving in the opposite direction was being teed up by the two clubs.
But TMW says the move fell through after Benalouane and his reps could not agree personal terms with Fulham.
Senderos' best chance of a move away now is a loan switch to a Championship club when that window reopens next week.
