Nikola Maksimovic the favorite to reinforce Roma’s defence

Roma continue their search for an additional defender after last night’s debacle at the Dacia Arena. Jose Mourinho’s side are in need of an extra centre-back to compete on several fronts at once.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the favorite candidate at the moment is ex-Napoli man Nikola Maksimovic who recently completed a brief spell at Genoa.

The Serbian defender is reportedly evaluating various proposals including the prospect of returning to Serbia with Red Star ready to welcome him.

Earlier reports suggested Roma pulled out of the race for Dan-Axel Zagadou due to the 23-year-old exorbitant demands. Jason Denayer is another profile the Giallorossi like.
