Fiorentina president Andrea Della Valle is urging Adem Ljajic to pen a new deal.
The midfielder is now inside the final 12 months of his current contract.
“I talked with him and now the directors will talk too. I am fairly optimistic. There are other priorities right now, which until today included securing Ilicic, but over the next few days we’ll be able to discuss it further.
“I am sure there will not be another Riccardo Montolivo saga,” said ADV.
