Napoli’s long sought-after target, Nikola Maksimovic, is still the partenopei’s top target and Napoli are still negotiating with Torino over the Center-back.
Napoli have still not given up on Torino’s Maksimovic, and according to Gianluca Di Marzio, Napoli and Maksimovic’s agent are working on lowering Torino president, Urbano Cairo’s demands for the defender. Reportedly, Torino’s current demands for the Serbian defender are €30million. Napoli are currently offering up to €28million + bonuses.
The relationship between Urbano Cairo and Napoli president has deteriorated after Napoli stealing Emanuele Giaccherini under Torino’s noses. Therefore, a deal to bring Maksimovic to Napoli will be very difficult. Cairo would like to sell Maksimovic to any other team other than Napoli and if Chelsea are not able to sign Milan’s Alessio Romagnoli, Chelsea will re-consider Maksimovic.
