Juventus have overtaken AC Milan in the race to sign talented striker Kaio Jorge from Santos, according to a report.
According to SportMediaset (via MilanNews), Juventus are pushing strongly to sign the 19-year-old centre-forward, a player that is also being eyed by Milan. The Brazilian has a contract expiring on December 31st and is valued at around €10m by Santos, who know they could yet end up losing him for free.
Meanwhile, both the Rossoneri and Bianconeri have made an offer of around €5-6m, but in the last few hours Juventus’ interest has intensified, so much so that the Turin-based club seem to have overtaken Milan in the race for Jorge.
Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara therefore will have to come forward with a decisive acceleration if they are to beat their fierce rivals and secure one of Brazil’s most interesting and highly-rated talents.
