Atletico Madrid is rumored to be in competition with a number of Serie A clubs for Santos striker Kaio Jorge ahead of a summer bidding war.
With 28 league appearances in the Brazilian top flight this season, the 19-year-old has broken into the Santos first team on a regular basis, including a hot streak of five goals in his last 12 games.
However, it is his goal-scoring ability at the underage level for Brazil that has piqued the interest of a growing number of European clubs, with 11 goals in 14 games at U16/U17 level.
Atletico Madrid are reportedly monitoring the teenage star, according to reports in Italy covered by Diario AS, with Diego Simeone’s side rumoured to be the front runners to sign him.
Santos will demand in the region of €25 million if they are willing to sell the most recent product off their production line, with no sale until January 2022.
