Wolves have been linked with a swoop for Kaio Jorge from Santos this summer.
It’s been obvious since the start that the path to sign the talented forward wouldn’t be easy.
And according to a report in Italy, Milan have reached an agreement with the player’s agent to sign him.
Gazzetta Dello Sport claim that Milan have an agreement which reassures them that the player will be theirs in due course.
They’re apparently willing to pay a fee to make sure Jorge arrives this summer rather than waiting until January.
£8.5 million was talked about in a previous report but this one writes that figure off in terms of relevance.
It was always doubtful whether Wolves would really push through with interest in a young forward having signed Fabio Silva last summer.
Bruno Lage did play a 4-4-2 in his first game in charge, so might need more attacking options.
Especially with Patrick Cutrone apparently in talks over leaving to join Sampdoria.
But a striker with more experience might be the order of the day for Lage, rather than a punt on a 19-year-old.
Milan look like they’re going to take that chance and we’ll see how Jorge’s career develops after making his big move to Europe.
