Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella has urged Adem Ljajic to stay.

The midfielder is inside the final year of his contract and been linked with AC Milan.

Montella said: "Adem has experienced important growth over the last few months, but he needs to improve again.

"For me, and I have told him this, he should stay at Fiorentina for at least one more year, preferably longer, if he is to become a champion."
