Sampdoria are reportedly one of many clubs keeping tabs on Brazil international Kaio Jorge.
According to the football transfer rumours in Italian media, Sampdoria are linked with loan move for Juventus striker Kaio Jorge.
Juventus reportedly paid Santos 1.5 million euros for Jorge earlier this year. The 19-year-old has a valid contract with Juventus until June 2026.
The striker has featured in only one matches for Juventus this term in all competitions.
The 19-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Brazil. Jorge has represented Brazil at Under-17 level, winning 10 caps and scoring 6 goals.
Adding a striker remains Sampdoria’s top priority this winter and Roberto D’Aversa will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming weeks. He has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe.
D’Aversa is a firm fan of Juventus striker and Sampdoria could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.
Sampdoria are desperate to make an impact in the winter transfer window.
The Brazil international provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker. His arrival would give Sampdoria some much needed tactical flexibility.
According to the report, “Sampdoria are eyeing Juventus striker Kaio Jorge. The former Santos striker joined Juve in August and Samp want to take him on-loan in January. Samp already have Juve pair Mohamed Ihattaren and Radu Dragusin on-loan and now want Jorge. La Gazzetta dello Sport says Samp have already informed Juve of their intentions and are waiting for the Bianconeri to give them the go-ahead to make the transfer happen. The report says the ball is now in Juve’s court and they will decide on his best path to further development.”
