Fiorentina director of football Pantaleo Corvino has indicated that Riccardo Montolivo is likely to leave the club this summer.
The midfielder only has one year remaining on his current deal and has so far refused to sign an extension.
Patience has gradually been wearing thin among club bosses and Corvino now appears resigned to losing the Italy international.
"We have been clear with Montolivo. I asked his agent if he wanted to continue with us, but the response was that a decision has been made," Corvino told Sportmediaset.
"Having looked at Montolivo's will, we will now see what solutions the transfer market offers us.
"We only want motivated players for our future."
Montolivo impressed for Fiorentina last season and AC Milan are reportedly interested in snapping him up.
