"Cristiano Ronaldo is a massive player and every young footballer would like to be compared to him," Giovani told setantasports.com.
"I'd be delighted to achieve what he has achieved in the next three or four years. I'm young and have room for improvement."
Giovani does not believe his small size will prevent him from shining in England.
"I think there're lots of small players that have succeeded in football so my physique is not a problem at all," he added.
