Juan Jesus a fan of Paulinho

Inter would not be making a mistake should they conclude a deal with Corinthians for Paulinho, says Juan Jesus.

The midfielder is being strongly linked with the San Siro giants after the Nerazzurri sold Wesley Sneijder to Galatasaray this month.

“I know him, he's a great player,” the Inter defender told Sport Mediaset. “He always gets into the box and scores a lot of goals.

“It'd be great for us if he does join Inter.”

Reports in Italy are suggesting that the Nerazzurri could make a concrete bid should they sell Liverpool-target Philippe Coutinho at some stage over the next week.

“I'd be sad if Coutinho left, but he needs to do what's right for him,” added the young Brazilian. “However it goes, whether he leaves or not, it won't change our friendship.”
