Sao Paulo's Casemiro has claimed that he's ready to play in Serie A as Inter are reportedly keen to add the youngster to their squad.
Inter coach Gian Piero Gasperini is looking to add some fresh blood to his team ahead of the 2011-12 campaign and he sees the 19-year-old as a possible addition.
The midfielder is considered to be one of the most promising youngsters in South America and clubs such as Roma and AC Milan are also believed to be monitoring his progress.
"I feel ready to play in Serie A as well as other European Leagues. I often speak to Coutinho, but not just about Inter. I know that the Nerazzurri and Roma have asked after me, but you’d have to talk about these matters with my agent," the player was quoted as saying by Il Corriere dello Sport.
"I often watch Italian football and my favourite Brazilians playing there are Alexandre Pato, Thiago Silva and Julio Cesar."
Casemiro has a contract until the summer of 2015 with Sao Paulo, meaning that he won't be available on the cheap if Inter decide to make a move for the midfielder.
