Longoni: Milan remain vigilant on promising Santos striker amid expiring contract

By Isak Möller -

Milan are close to securing the arrival of Olivier Giroud, who will be the deputy for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but they might not stop there. In fact, a young striker could also be brought in, a report claims. 

According to Andrea Longo, in his latest for MilanNews, Stefano Pioli will be able to be a lot more comfortable for the signing of Giroud. Having said that, the management also wants to add a young striker to the squad for the future.

Kaio Jorge, a 19-year-old Brazilian, is an option for the Rossoneri as he would be a lost-cost signing. His contract will expire in January and Milan could wait until then, or secure him for a bargain price already this summer.

The youngster would be able to learn a lot from Giroud and Ibrahimovic, while also getting some playing time here and there. With the former two not exactly getting any younger, it could be a wise investment for the future.
