Juan Jesus: Wants to team up with Damiao and Oscar at club level again

The 22-year-old joined the Serie A side in January 2012 and has gone on to make 47 appearances, scoring once.

He previously played with Oscar, now at Chelsea, and Damiao at Brazilian side Internacional and admits he would love to team up with them again at his present club.

He told La Gazzetta dello Sport: "When I was at Internacional four clubs wanted me - Benfica, Juventus, Inter and Napoli.

"I chose Inter because they spoke to me of a reconstruction project based on young players. And I absolutely don't regret it.

"My idol is (former Bayern Munich and Inter player) Lucio, for me he is an icon.

"Which Brazilian I would like to see play for Inter? Leandro Damiao, my former taeam mate at Internacional. Inter followed him? If only he came... (I'd like) even Chelsea's Oscar."
