"I am very happy to be here ... It's a big club, one of the biggest in Europe, and it's always been my dream to play for Juve," he said.

Italian media reported Juventus would pay up to 4 million euros ($4.69 million) for the player.

Kaio Jorge broke into the Santos first team aged 16, becoming its sixth-youngest league debutant when he made his professional bow in September 2018.

The striker scored 17 goals in 80 games and follows the likes of Robinho, Neymar and Rodrygo to leave Santos for a major European side.
