His performances have attracted attention from sides within Italy, while recent speculation has suggested that Chelsea are looking at him as a potential alternative to Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly, with a £20m offer being readied.

But, now reports reveal that with the Blues stalling on a potential move West Ham have edged into the lead, with the east London club having made enquiries regarding a deal.

It’s understood that the Serbian’s agent has been contacted by the Hammers, who have already signed TEN new players this summer.

Maksimovic has been a key player at Torino since joining the club from Red Star Belgrade in 2013 and has developed a reputation for his dependable playing style at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.
