Bayer Leverkusen battle Juventus & Chelsea for Brazil teenager Kaio Jorge

Bayer Leverkusen are interested in signing 18-year-old Santos attacker Kaio Jorge, according to Kicker.

The Brazil youth international is also being courted by Juventus and Chelsea but has a preference to join Bayer Leverkusen should the opportunity arise, given the likelihood of more first team football.

Jorge scored five and created two in seven games as Brazil lifted the U17 World Cup last year.

As a search for a young South American striker continues, Bayer Leverkusen have also recognised 18-year-old Danubio forward Juan Gutierrez as a potential arrival.
