Napoli sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli will meet with Kaio Jorge’s agent on Friday this week, their first official meeting since rumours began linking the Campania side to the Brazilian starlet.

Kaio Jorge has struggled with injuries this campaign, only making 11 appearances across all competitions for Santos since the start of this season. In his 593 minutes on the pitch, he has scored three goals and provided one assist.

Lazio have been linked with the Brazilian teenager for some time now, with some reports even suggesting that they had bid €8 million-plus add-ons for the 19-year-old, although this was later confirmed to be untrue.

Napoli will also face competition from Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid, who have also kept a close eye on Kaio Jorge for a while.
