Arsenal are reportedly considering to make a January transfer move for Napoli defender Nikola Maksimovic.

The 22-year-old defender, who signed for Napoli £20million w from Torino in summer of 2016, spent most of his first season in Naples on the bench and has only started two games this campaign, leading to talk that the Serie A side are looking to cash in on the player.

According to the Football Italia, the Gunners are ready to make a move for the centre-half, claiming that the Serbia international is considered as the long-term partner for Callum Chambers at Arsenal defence.

Chambers has signed a new deal until summer of 2021, despite failing to gather a regular starting spot at Arsenal, with the club admitting: “Everyone at Arsenal is looking forward to Calum’s continued contribution to the club.”

As for Maksimovic, his career has started in Serbia with Sloboda Uzice before making a £200,000 move to Red Star Belgrade and then a switch to Torino.

He played in 66 games for Torino before moving to Serie A rivals Napoli and despite not being a standout performer that has not stopped talk of a move to London.
