How to do JWT token decryption in PCL library?

Hi, I'm trying to work out a way to do JWT token decryption in a PCL library so I can use it in a cross platform Xamarin app. I get a JWT that is encrypted using asymmetric key encryption. I know there are libraries like Jose.JWT and Xamarin.Jose.Jwt but these are not PCL compatible. The closest thing I could find is but this is far from finished.

I'm trying to re-create the Jose logic on top of PCLCrypto but not getting any luck properly decoding the JWT. Plus it doesn't feel sensible to do encryption/decryption myself and rather rely on a well tested and supported library. Any ideas or alternatives?
