Atmega 8 in pro mini

Hi I have an esc and pro mini both not working lying around. The esc has it's mosfets burnt and the pro mini doesn't bootload or upload. So I thought if I could replace the atmega on pro mini with that on esc since soldering is not a problem and will give life to my mini since atmega 328 is not available cheaply in India and cost much more than uno clone here
