Wolverhampton Wanderers have been linked with a move for Santos youngster Kaio Jorge.
According to A Bola, the Brazilian starlet is wanted by Molineux officials.
The publication claim Jorge is ‘most likely’ a reinforcement for new head coach Bruno Lage.
Jorge has been making a name for himself over the past few years.
He broke through to the Santos first-team in 2018 and to date, he has clocked up 72 appearances for the club – an impressive output given he is only 19.
Jorge has represented Brazil at U15 and U17 level, and scored in the U17’s World Cup final defeat to Mexico in 2019.
It’s been claimed by A Bola that Wolves have already lodged a €15 million/£12.8 million proposal for the former futsal player.
His contract with Santos expires in December, meaning there could be potential to get him cheaper.
On social media, some fans have been reacting to the links to Jorge.
It seems that quite a few are excited by the likes to the South American starlet:
Writing was there for all to see that we were going to take advantage of the brecht loophole to and shop in South America. Never heardbof this kid but to play for Santos means he must have something

Thanks for that. He looks big and strong for a young lad, plays with his head up, decent touch and strong with his back to goal. Can’t tell so much what he’s like in front of goal, but from the reports on here he bangs them in on Football Manager so he must be worth a punt! 😁

Would be a really good signing, I think! 🤞

Be absolutely mental if we get him. Destined for the top
