Ljajic will be a bargain for Milan, says Mihajlovic

The Serbia boss feels his compatriot would be a fine addition to the Rossoneri if his proposed move goes ahead

Sinisa Mihajlovic believes that Adem Ljajic will prove to be a bargain for AC Milan if the attacker leaves Fiorentina for the San Siro side this summer.

The Rossoneri are keen to lure the 21-year-old Serbian away from his current club ahead of the 2013-14 campaign and recently saw a first offer for Ljajic rejected.

However, Milan continue to monitor the attacker's situation at Fiorentina, and Mihajlovic - who is currently in charge of Serbia - feels Ljajic would be a fine addition to

Massimiliano Allegri's side.

"It will prove to be a real bargain if [Adriano] Galliani manages to sign Ljajic," Mihajlovic told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"I know Adem really well. He has started to perform consistently under me. He has developed really well. He scores a lot of goals now and is a flexible and complete player.

"He is becoming a great player and I wouldn't let go of him if I were Fiorentina. He's worth making a financial sacrifice for. They did it before with Stevan Jovetic when they renewed his deal and could do the same with Adem."

Ljajic's current contract with Fiorentina runs until June 2014.
