The Serbian has been highly sought-after this transfer session. In an attempt to block any incoming offers, Torino look to agree a contract renewal with Nikola.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, there was a first interview with the club over a contract renewal for Maksimovic. Torino would like to give him a raise however Maksimovic’s requests are very high.
Maksimovic would like to earn €2million/year, this could ultimately end up benefitting Napoli as the partenopei are keen on the defender and have offered Maksimovic as much as he is requesting per year. Nikola’s current contract with Torino sees him earn €800k + bonuses each year.
Torino does not want to pay Maksimovic what he is demanding, however they will try to raise his pay. Torino, in the meantime, keeps on rejecting offers from Napoli as they are very adamant in keeping their talented Serbian center-back, especially after the departure of Kamil Glik.
