Adem Ljajic's agent has warned Fiorentina their patience is running out amid interest from Premier League sides.
The young talent had a promising debut season in Serie A, but has barely set foot on the field for months, as Alessio Cerci and Stevan Jovetic showed great form.
“I spoke to the lad a few days ago and at the moment he is very calm,” said Giorgio Parretti.
“I am aware of the fact there are many clubs who would like to sign him, but it doesn't seem to be the right moment to talk about these matters.
“We will wait and see what happens over the next few weeks, then we'll decide what to do.”
It is very likely the Viola will release Ljajic on loan in January to the Premier League, though they hope to keep hold of his ownership.
Everton and Aston Villa are said to be most keen on his services, although Ljajic had been due to join Manchester United in 2009 when the deal fell through.
