Foot Afrique reports Leeds are unwilling to pay the reported £2m asking price for Larouci.
The left-back looks set to depart the club this summer in search of game time - with the newly-promoted Yorkshire outfit one of the interested parties in a potential deal.
But Leeds think the current asking price is an overestimation of what Larouci is worth having featured predominantly for the Academy.
It does seem likely the Algerian will depart following the arrival of Kostas Tsimikas earlier this week.
Brentford were also interested in the 19-year-old but I guess we will have to wait and see what happens.
