Corinthians star Paulinho keen on a move to Tottenham

Corinthians star Paulinho keen on a move to Tottenham

Corinthians midfielder Paulinho revealed he would jump at the ‘fantastic opportunity’ of joining Tottenham.

The latest reports suggest Tottenham have triggered player’s £17 million release clause and Corinthians director Duilio Monteiro Alves is looking forward to discuss the offer with Paulinho as soon as he returns from Confederations Cup. Alves said: “The buy-out fee is 20million Euros and Corinthians can’t do anything. We’ll talk with him. Paulinho already knows about the offer, we told him. He asked to wait until he returns from the national team. When he comes, the final decision will be made.”

The recent speculation linked Paulinho with a move to Inter Milan and Roma, however the 24-year-old Brazil international revealed he keen on a move to Tottenham. He said: “I feel I am ready to experience football at the highest level in Europe and the opportunity to play in England is a dream.”

“It’s a great pleasure to be linked to such a great club like Tottenham. They have a reputation as one of the great clubs in England who play exciting, attacking football which suits my style. I couldn’t turn them down if they made me an offer. It would be a fantastic opportunity to play for Tottenham,” he added.
