Wolves have reportedly been joined in the hunt for Kaio Jorge by Juventus.

Record have claimed the highly-rated Brazilian youngster is now on the radar of the Italian giants, with his contract expiring at the end of the year.

Jorge can come to a pre-contract agreement with another club from Europe.

There is also potential for Santos to sell right now so they don’t lose him for nothing.

Apparently, Lage is keen on the South American starlet, who is described as ‘a kid with an excellent attitude in training and in play, physically available and brave’ by his old coach Rui Aguias.

 

Jorge is supposedly seen as an alternative to £30 million man Raul Jimenez (BBC Sport).

Of course, Jimenez suffered that awful head injury last season, and it remains to be seen how he’ll get on next season.

Hopefully he can get reach the same level he was at prior to the injury.

Jorge signing would cast doubt on Silva

It is difficult to see Wolves swooping for Jorge when there is already someone at the club with the ‘exciting young striker’ profile.

Big things are expected of Fabio Silva in his second season in English football.

Signing Jorge would potentially limit his opportunities, and Jorge himself may struggle for game time too.
