Bruno Lage is reportedly fighting for Wolves to sign Kaio Jorge in the summer transfer window.
The Lowdown: Jimenez alternative needed
The Molineux club certainly need to think about bringing in an alternative to Raul Jimenez should he suffer an injury as serious as the one he picked up during the 2020/21 season, which ruled him out for most of the campaign.
They have Fabio Silva but he is still very raw, so he too would need help in attack if Jimenez were to pick up another serious injury.
The Latest: Jorge wanted
In an interview with Rui Aguias, his former manager at Santos, Jorge was described as having an ‘excellent attitude’ and a player who is ‘brave’ and has ‘quality’. He was also labelled an ‘athlete’ and has been backed to be ‘very successful’ in his future playing career.
The Verdict: Sign
Aguias will know Jorge a lot better than most, so for him to speak so highly of the player despite him being just 19 years of age surely suggests that he could be a future star of the game.
Should Wolves sign Jorge?
Despite his age, the striker has been playing in men’s football since 2018, scoring 15 goals and supplying four assists in 75 games across all competitions for Santos (Transfermarkt).
Jorge has even been likened to a legend of the game, having been dubbed the ‘new Cristiano Ronaldo’, which should get Wolves supporters excited should they manage to strike a deal to sign him.
