With rumours swirling around about Nikola Maksimovic’s departure, Torino have identified a replacement.
Should Nikola Maksimovic depart the Granata for Napoli, Torino have already spotted a possible replacement. As reported by Alfredo Pedulla, Torino are hot on the heels of Vasco da Gama’s Brazilian center-back Luan Garcia Teixeira. All however will depend on if Napoli will increase their offer for Maksimovic.
Teixeira‘s release clause is listed at €5 million and recently, the 22-year old extended his contract with Vasco da Gama from 2017 to 2019. He made 25 appearances in the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A and 16 appearances in the Campeonate Carioca, scoring 4 goals and picking up 3 yellow cards.
