The Milan management have received the green light from Elliott Management to sign Kaio Jorge from Santos, according to a report.
Tuttosport (via MilanNews) writes that while the negotiations for Olivier Giroud are continuing, Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are also still looking for another younger striker to be included in the squad next season and Kaio Jorge is the latest name, a 19-year-old Brazilian striker on whom Juventus and Napoli have also set their sights.
Jorge’s contract expiring in six months and he has decided not to renew, so he could be bought for between €10m and €15m. It is an operation that would fit perfectly within the parameters of Elliott, who have therefore given their green light to the deal.
The Rossoneri scouts have given positive reports on the teenager and therefore Milan will remain at the window, but after Tomori’s signing there is only one of the two slots for non-EU players. Jorge also falls into this category, so a decision must be made on whether to use the final spot on the Santos starlet.
