The 21-year-old attacking midfielder is currently holding talks with the Florence side but Viola coach Vincenzo Montella has now admitted that the highly-rated Serbian star is unhappy at the club.

“He’s experiencing an internal conflict,” Montella told reporters. “He has not looked very serene in recent days. What can I say, there are economic problems which are not easy.

“I’m willing to wait, just as long as he’s serene, and today he doesn’t look all that serene. I’m still convinced that [staying with Fiorentina] would be the best solution for him.”

After some impressive displays in Serie A with Fiorentina a number of clubs across Europe are thought to be considering a move for the player who was rejected by Manchester United after a short trial period with the club in 2009.

Italian giants AC Milan are expected to offer Spurs fierce competition for the creative midfielder, who hit 12 goals in 31 Serie A games last year as he reaches his final year of his current contract at the Florence-based club.

Will Spurs now up their increase their interest in the talented youngster? Let us know your thoughts below.
