The youngster says he feels ready to replace Douglas Maicon at Inter.
â€śMany people tell me I am the heir to Maicon, as I am similar in terms of strength and pace,â€ť he told the Gazzetta dello Sport.
â€śWe donâ€™t know each other really, as we are from different generations. We never played together at Cruzeiro, but I did train alongside him in a few games between ranks when I was in the youth team.
â€śI have not signed anything yet and donâ€™t want problems with Santos, so I am leaving it all in the hands of my agent.â€ť
This is not the first time that Jonathan has been linked with a Serie A switch.
â€śI read that last year Milan sent scouts to see me play, but they couldnâ€™t buy me because of the limit on non-EU players.â€ť
