Several Crystal Palace fans have been giving their thoughts to the club’s interest in Napoli defender Nikola Maksimovic.
According to Area Napoli, the Eagles have been in touch with the centre-back’s agent ahead of a potential free transfer to Selhurst Park.
The Serbia international, valued at £10.8m by Transfermarkt, will be a free agent when his contract expires in the summer and it seems as if Palace want to secure his services ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
The report claims that Palace are actually looking to sign three centre-backs in the upcoming window, with Maksimovic firmly on their radar.

Palace fans react
It didn’t take long for some Palace fans to give their thoughts on a potential deal, with a few addressing the average age of the squad and one describing Maksimovic as ‘awful’.
“He’s a good free agent that frees up money for other areas. Have to remember Kelly, Cahill and Dann are out of contract. Kouyate might also move back to CM next season”
“Bringing the average age down”
“awful signing given the age mate”
“Bring down the squad age una”
“30 in November… I suppose technically it brings the average age down, but not sure it’s exactly what most of us had in mind.”
“Nah, too old”
