Liverpool target certain to leave Italian club
Fiorentina wide man and Liverpool target Adem Ljajic is set to replace Erik Lamela at Roma according to reports in the Express as Tottenham Hotspur look to finalise the signing of the Argentine winger.

Reportedly Ljajic had signed a pre-contract agreement with Italian Giants AC Milan but La Viola had second thoughts about the deal.
According to Italian paper Corriere dello Sport the winger will be signing on with Roma for a reported £10m fee.
An announcement confirming the signing of Ljajic on a four year contract will be made at some point in the next 48hrs the newspaper reports.
The Serbian winger’s departure was described as the most likely outcome by the clubs president as he was left out of the squad to play Catania on the weekend.
19-year-old Croatia international Rebic is thought to have been identified as a replacement for the outgoing Ljajic say reports.
