According to Goal, Santos starlet Kaio Jorge is in advanced talks with Juventus to sign for the Old Lady in January 2022 after rejecting a move to Benfica. The Santos star has thrived for the club and is in the final six months of his current deal which allows him to negotiate a pre-contract move.

With Juventus looking to refresh and freshen up their team, it has seen the Old Lady linked with a move for some of the world’s most exciting young stars. They’ve already attacked Italy with moves for Federicio Chiesa, Dejan Kulsuveski and a few others over the years with Weston McKennie also signing from Schalke last summer. However, the club have now got their eye on South America, with them linked with a move for Kaio Jorge.

Benfica also keen on signing the 19-year-old has complicated the move, but Goal has reported that Jorge has rejected a move to Portugal. Instead, the report has revealed that Juventus and the Santos starlet are in advanced talks over a move in January 2022. The 19-year-old is in the final six months of his current contract and rejected a new deal from the club with the intention to leave. That has seen talks progress rapidly between the Serie A giants and the young forward.

However, the report has indicated that Juventus are now pondering a potential move this summer which would see them pay Santos between €1-2 million for a permanent move. They could also sign a pre-contract agreement with Jorge but that would see him only arrive in January and Santos would receive nothing as he would leave for free. The 19-year-old has also been linked with a move to England and other clubs within Italy as well but no club has made the leap for the young Brazilian.
