Santos Starlet Offered to Serie A Clubs, Including Juventus and Milan

Some intermediaries have proposed Santos forward Kaio Jorge to Milan, Juventus, and Napoli. The Brazilian prospect has a low price tag because his current contract expires in six months. The three sides, and Lazio, could be interested under the right circumstances, Tuttosport reports.

Kaio Jorge might move for €10/15M given his contractual situation. Although, his side is still hopeful on agreeing on an extension. The 19-year-old forward has tallied 15 goals in 73 appearances with Santos. He will draw interest from multiple European teams at such price.

Milan continue to work to sign Olivier Giroud for free but might get another striker too. The Elliott fund prioritizes investing in youngsters and should easily okay the move. However, the Rossoneri have already filled one spot for extra-EU players with Fikayo Tomori. They might decide to keep the second and final one open for other opportunities.

Juventus are eyeing similar profiles to add depth, regardless of the future of Cristiano Ronaldo. Instead, Napoli would likely have to sell of their strikers before making a move. Lazio are keener on adding him for free at the end of the season, but the commission asked by his agent is considerable.

Santos president Andres Rueda recently stated, via Transfermarkt: “The player and the family came to the conclusion that it is time for him to move to Europe. The situation is simple: we will either receive a suitable offer or negotiate a new contract. There is less money circulating in football now due to the pandemic. I am confident the situation will have a positive solution one way or the other.”
