Negotiations continue over contract extension with Serbian international.
Fiorentina president Andrea Della Valle is set for face-to-face talks with striker Adem Ljajic in a bid to reach an agreement over a new contract.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Della Valle has travelled to the club’s pre-season retreat in Moena in order to take a closer look at how the players are looking ahead of the new campaign.
Having significantly invested in the squad following a relatively successful season last year, Della Valle will hope the likes of Mario Gomez and Josip Ilicic can have a positive impact this season, helping them to compete on all three fronts.
However, as part of his trip he is set to sit down for face-to-face talks with striker Ljajic, with talks continuing to stall over a new deal.
The 21-year-old’s current deal runs out next summer, and with interest from both AC Milan and Tottenham, Della Valle is keen to understand the situation surrounding the Serbian’s future.
While coach Vincenzo Montella dropped the star in their last friendly game as he was unsure over his mental state, there have been warnings from club officials who suggest that Ljajic must prove that he wishes to stay in Florence.
If he does not, then the club would have to consider selling him this summer in order to avoid losing him for nothing in twelve months time.
Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has previously revealed that he has held talks with the Viola over Ljajic’s future, but it remains to be seen whether or not an extension can be agreed upon.
