Serbian starlet is now expected to be placed on the market.
Fiorentina have failed to reach an agreement with Adem Ljajic over a new contract, thus leading to reports that he is now on the market.
According to respected Sky Sport Italia journalist, Gianluca Di Marzio, a meeting between the two parties on Friday evening failed to result in an agreement over a new deal.

Ljajic was present for the first part, while his agent and father continued discussions as he went to join his current team-mates for training.
As a result, following on from Viola owner Andrea Della Valle’s previous comments, it is now likely that the 21-year-old will be placed on the market.
The talented youngster is set to see his current contract expire next summer, and Fiorentina are said to be against losing him for nothing.
While the likes of Atletico Madrid and Roma are said to be interested in Ljajic, initial reaction suggests that AC Milan remain in pole position to sign him.
However, while the player would prefer to secure a move to San Siro, it remains to be seen whether or not an agreement can be reached between the two clubs.
The Rossoneri have had a previous bid of €8m rejected by their Serie A rivals, with club officials slamming their proposal as “inopportune”.
With tense relations between the two it has been reported that Della Valle would much prefer to sell abroad, but Ljajic is still keen on a move to Milan and they are likely to return with an improved offer should they secure qualification to the group stages of the Champions League on Wednesday night.
