Chelsea boss Lampard has inside track on Santos whizkid Kai Jorge

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is eyeing Santos whizkid Kai Jorge.

Kicker says Lampard wants to bring him to Stamford Bridge in the upcoming transfer window.

The striker was widely expected to join Juventus before the coronavirus pandemic - but their interest has waned and other potential suitors have spotted an opportunity.

Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen are one of those sides, but Chelsea could hold a significant advantage over their rivals.

And that's because Jorge, who has a £69million release clause in his contract, shares the same representative as former Chelsea pair Oscar and David Luiz.

The Blues have done plenty of business with agent Giuliano Bertolucci over the years and could utilise their relationship to bring Jorge to west London, reports the Daily Express.
