CM: Milan open talks with agent of Santos sensation – Inter, Arsenal and Chelsea also keen

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are in talks with the entourage of Santos striker Kaio Jorge, a report claims, with the management evaluating a possible move.

According to Calciomercato.com, the Rossoneri are keeping an eye on Jorge, the 19-year-old Brazilian forward who plays for Santos. His contract expires in December 2021 and this makes him an attractive target for many teams, with Maldini and Massara also evaluating him at the moment.

Contacts have already been started with his agent Giuliano Bertolucci and while Milan have not yet accelerated the negotiations, they intend to evaluate other options before making a concrete effort to land the teenager.

Juventus and Inter have also enquired about Jorge and the Bianconeri even tried to do an operation involving Sassuolo in the recent past, one that would have seen him owned by Juve but on loan there. The Nerazzurri meanwhile are monitoring the situation, ready to come forward as soon as their ownership situation is resolved.

Marseille and Shakhtar Donetsk are also keen, as are Arsenal and Chelsea in England. The contractual situation of the South American striker – who has nine goals and one assists in 51 games for Santos – represents a great opportunity.
