Manchester City have been linked with a move for Fiorentina forward Adem Ljajic, who could be available for a cut-price fee.
City have already signed striker Stevan Jovetic from the Italian side this summer and it has been reported they are now considering a move for Ljajic.
The Serbian winger is yet to sign a new deal with La Viola and has just a year remaining on his current contract.
It had been thought that Ljajic was happy to remain with Fiorentina but the club's sporting director Danile Prade has hinted the 21-year-old could be sold this summer.
"We are trying to extend Ljajic's contract but it depends on the player and his will," Prade is quoted as saying in the Daily Express.
"There will be an important meeting between his agent and our president, but our club wants only motivated people who are willing to stay at Fiorentina. We have to evaluate this situation day by day."
As Ljajic has just a year left on his current deal, City won't have to break the bank to sign the Serbian international but Fiorentina will want to see a profit on the 8million euros fee they paid Partizan Belgrade for his services in 2010.
City will face competition for Ljajic if it becomes clear that he is set to leave La Viola this summer as Italian giants AC Milan and Premier League rivals Chelsea and Manchester United have also been credited with an interest.
