Torino Granata have reported that Tottenham have now joined a list of candidates looking at Napoli central defender, Nikola Maksimović this summer (as relayed by Sport Witness).

The Serbian defender looks to be available on a free transfer in the summer after his contract expires at the end of the current season.

The report claims that the chances of Maksimović signing a new contract with the Italian are now very slim, hence why other European teams are beginning to circle.

It is claimed that Tottenham are joined by Inter Milan, West Ham, Roma, Fiorentina, and Porto in ‘warming up’ to offer the Serbian defender a deal.

Spurs have struggled in the centre of defence this season with the likes of Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez rotating in and out of the side due to form.

It was also reported today that Spurs were interested in signing Diego Carlos from Sevilla, but Maksimović would certainly present a cheaper option at centre-back.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Which ever option for central defender spurs go for should not be made by cost but whether they are the right one with alround defensive capabilities, not like some we have purchased in the past.
