Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho reportedly wants more strength in depth at the back.

And Spazio Napoli suggest Mourinho is casting an eye towards the former Torino and Red Star Belgrade defender.

It's claimed Spurs might even consider a move this month as Maksimovic has played just eight Serie A games this season.

But even though Maksimovic has been to speak to other clubs since January 1, a summer exit still seems more likely.

He could, however, sign a pre-contract agreement with a club outside Italy.

So Tottenham might be keen to steal a march on Lazio and step up any interest they have in the 25-cap ace.

Spurs have been linked too with Inter Milan's Milan Skriniar, who has also been on Manchester United's radar.

And back in September Tottenham were said to have opened talks over a £52.5m move for the Slovakia lynchpin, 25.
