Gianluca di Marzio via MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan have submitted an offer to Santos for young striker Kaio Jorge at 6 million euros. Santos are demanding 10 million euros to close a deal but the player has a contract expiring in December. This means he will be available for free in the winter transfer window.

Calcio Mercato are reporting that Juventus are competing with Milan for his signature and both clubs are working on accelerating talks to complete a move in the summer as they do not like the risks of waiting until the winter to sign the player.

Alfredo Pedulla is reporting that the intermediaries of the player will be in Milan this coming week to help with the negotiations to get a deal done. There is a feeling that the agents of the player do not want him to leave Santos for free. The report does suggest that the intermediaries will be speaking to multiple clubs regarding a move for the striker.

Tuttosport via MilanNews.it are reporting that Jorge would take up the final non-EU spot for Milan if they manage to sign him this summer.
