According to Sky Sport journalist Angelo Mangiante, West Ham United have begun talks with Napoli over defender Maksimovic.
The Italian Serie A side is currently faced with the likely departure of Kalidou Koulbaly who is been linked with a move away from the club even as clubs like Manchester United, City remains his top destinations.
#ACMilan consider #Rudiger's salary too high. For #Tottenham the priority remains #Skriniar but, in case of no agreement with Inter, the alternative for #THFC is Rudiger.

However, the recent revelation by the journalist indicates the club could lose another defender before Kalidou Koulbaly might even give his farewell to the club.
Napoli had an impressive showing last Sunday with a win over Genoa ensured two wins from the opening two matchdays.
Maksimovic or Luperto could be heading to the exit door with the recent rumours surrounding the future of the two players.
