The club is yet to agree terms to purchase the striker from Santos though. More and more clubs are entering the race for him as Benfica and Juventus are speaking with the player and his club. Milan are reportedly sticking to their original offer of 3/4 million euros for the 19 year old striker whose contract expires in December. The striker would play as cover for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Olivier Giroud.

Calcio Mercato are reporting that Milan have an agreement with the entourage of the player for a 5 million euro commission fee if he joins for free this winter. Santos are requesting 10 million euros for the striker but are willing to consider offers above 6 million euros.

Andre Noruega - the official representative of Santos in Europe - is stating that he is 99% confident Jorge will end up in Serie A as he notes Juventus, Milan and Napoli in the race for the player.

Reports from last night suggest that Juventus have swooped in and stolen the deal from Milan as they have an agreement with the player too. This is being reported by Romeo Agresti and Daniele Longo.
