Maksimovic close to Roma

The calciomercato has been closed for a week now, but not as far as free players are concerned. Here then is that Roma, following the latest disappointing defeats against Udinese and Ludogorets, is thinking of intervening in the market, inserting a defender in the back pack. The request for a defensive reinforcement from the coach, Jose Mourinho, is certainly nothing new.

The name that seems to make the case for the Capitoline club is that of Nikola Maksimovic, a Serbian central defender who was released by Genoa after a disappointing season, coinciding with the Ligurian club’s relegation to Serie B. According to Alfredo Pedullà reports, contacts between the parties have intensified in recent days and a decisive breakthrough could come soon.
