Serie A giant Napoli are eager to get lead to head with Chelsea for the signature of Santos FC young and dynamic forward Kaio Jorge.
Chelsea in the past few seasons have been investing in young players and the top hierarchy at the club are eager to continue the trend to build the club future.
With the likes of Erling Haaland currently being monitored by the club, Kaio Jorge have also emerged as a top target with the teenager generating a lot of interest.
The likes of Arsenal have been linked with the youngster but Chelsea are rumoured to be on the forefront when it comes to signing the 19-year-old.
Napoli have now become the latest club eyeing the forward as they are willing to lure him to the new project currently going on in the club.
According to Calciomercato, Napoli are willing to sign Kaio Jorge as a long-term replacement for Dries Mertens whose contract with the club expires next season.
However, the Seria A club will not find it easy to sign Jorge as Chelsea are willing to add him to the list of the youngster to make the trip to London.
Kaio Jorge’s agent, Carlos Neto had earlier spoke about the interest his client is generating from clubs and his desire to leave for Europe.
