Fiorentina general manager Sandro Mencucci has set a deadline over Adem Ljajic's sale.

Mencucci wants a decision from the midfielder over their new contract offer.

"Fiorentina have made their proposal, including a wage increase, but he has received offers from other clubs," revealed Mencucci.

"We have given him until Tuesday to decide. If he finds a club that is willing to offer him more, then he will come and tell us. In any case, Fiorentina will be competitive."
