Serbian international is reportedly open to signing deal.
Fiorentina are set to offer starlet Adem Ljajic a contract extension that does not include an “anti-Milan” clause as first thought.
The 21-year-old has been linked with a move to San Siro this summer, as negotiations over a new contract with the Viola have yet to result in an agreement.
Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani saw his initial €8m bid rejected a fortnight ago, and it had been reported in the Italian media that Fiorentina owner Andrea Della Valle would include an “anti-Milan” clause in the extension proposal.
The clause would effectively allow Ljajic to leave for a set release clause fee, but only if a foreign club made the offer, thus ruling out the possibility of joining their Serie A rivals.
However, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Ljajic is in all probability set to sign the new contract which will extend his stay at the club until 2017.
While there will be no clause to rule out a move to Milan, his release clause fee will be set at €12m and it remains to be seen whether or not the Rossoneri will return with an improved bid.
Galliani has also left open the possibility of signing CSKA playmaker Keisuke Honda open this summer, but it is unclear at this stage as to which target is most likely to join the club.
Nevertheless, it is expected that a decision will be made sooner rather than later on an extension for Ljajic, with Fiorentina preparing for their Europa League qualifying round clash with Grasshopper Zurich.
