Tuttosport via MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan are standing firm on their offer to Santos for young striker Kaio Jorge. Milan are pressing to close a deal for the promising forward as soon as possible as his club look to cash in before the winter where they will lose him for free. Milan offered about 4 million euros in their opening offer. The plan currently seems to be to sign him now and not play the waiting game until the winter.

Sport Mediaset via MilanLive.it are reporting that Milan could fall out of the race despite leading it all this time as they are rigid on the price and Juventus have now come in higher. Juventus are reportedly offering Santos 6 million euros for the young striker which gives the club and player something to think about. The Rossoneri will need to make an updated offer or risk losing the player in the coming days.
