Juventus have not lost faith in teen forward Kaio Jorge despite his relatively sluggish loan stint at promoted Frosinone. As per Calciomercato, the record-time Serie A champions contemplate offering the 22-year-old a new deal in the coming months.
Jorge joined Eusebio Di Francesco’s team last summer to gain experience and much-needed regular first-team football. But after an injury-hit start to the season, he has struggled for form at Benito Stirpe, netting just three goals in 14 Serie A appearances.
Unlike Matias Soule and Enzo Barrenechea, Jorge is still trying to find his feet in the Italian top flight. The Juventus loanee started Sunday’s clash against Fiorentina. However, his below-par finishing ruined several promising chances for Frosinone as Vincenzo Italiano’s side ran out 5-1 victors.
Despite the Brazilian’s rough patch, Massimiliano Allegri’s men still believe in him. A new deal is on the cards, with his current contract at the Allianz Stadium expiring in 2026. Yet, he will not link up with the first-team squad for next season. Instead, a new loan is waiting in the wings.
Frosinone would be an ideal option for the Juventus youngster. He has already settled at Benito Stirpe, though the Canaris’ top-flight status is far from a foregone conclusion. If they can secure another season in Serie A, Jorge could stay put for 2024/25.
Otherwise, Juventus will explore other options for the ex-Santos striker. For now, Jorge’s only concern is to rediscover his scoring instincts and help Frosinone stay afloat.
