> Juventus and Milan are vying for the skills of Santos forward Kaio Jorge, whose coach has acknowledged that ‘a number of European clubs are interested in him.’ The 19-year-old has scored six goals in ten games for Brazil’s Under-17 national team thus far. His contract with Santos expires in December 2021, but the club wants €10 million in exchange for releasing him over the summer months. According to Sport Mediaset and Calciomercato.com, Juventus have now joined Milan in the pursuit of Kaio Jorge, who was previously linked to both clubs. Despite the fact that the Rossoneri remain the favourites after offering €6 million, Juventus should not be ruled out as a contender, especially if Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo is contemplating his future abroad. In 23 competitive appearances for Santos this season, Kaio Jorge scored six goals and added three assists to his tally. At a press conference, Santos coach Fernando Diniz claimed that “a number of European clubs are interested in signing him.” “Despite his young age, Kaio displays rising maturity and character in his play. He is aware of his responsibilities, has confidence in himself, and is a top-tier striker.” Napoli and Lazio were both interested in signing him last year, but they decided to focus their efforts on other prospects. He’s been linked to other clubs on the continent, including Liverpool, but he’d be guaranteed a lot more playing time at Milan, who have a long history of success with Brazilian players.
