'More error prone than Sanchez': Some Spurs fans react to Nikola Maksimovic links
A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to comment on the speculation linking Spurs with Nikola Maksimovic.
And according to Radio Kiss Kiss (via Spazio Napoli), Tottenham are keeping tabs on the Napoli centre-back, whose contract runs out at the end of the season.
FourFourTwo, meanwhile, claim that Jose Mourinho could even launch an attempt to sign Maksimovic this month.
However, they suggest Napoli could be reluctant to sell him unless they can secure a replacement before the window closes next week.
Maksimovic has made 14 appearances in all competitions this season, being largely limited to game time in the Europa League early on but now featuring more often in Serie A.
He has made 86 appearances overall for Napoli, and has won 25 caps for Serbia.
Although the 29-year-old does have plenty of experience in Serie A, Europe and internationally, plenty of Spurs supporters don’t think he’d be a particularly good shout.
Here is what some have been saying on social media:
Pass I prefer Milenković younger and with experience

At Tottenham we’re only allowed to sign budget versions of legit players 🤣

Our defense needs a player who is world class already. Someone like Varane can control and organize the back for us.

No no no no, he is trash

I really hope not, been watching him last 8-9 years and he’s more error prone than Sanchez

He wouldn’t be much of an upgrade on what we’ve got need better than that
