Spurs Look To Sell £17m Flop, Not Loan Him Out – reports

Tottenham Hotspur are not thought to be willing to let Brazilian midfielder Paulinho leave the club this month on a temporary basis, unless there is the possibility of a permanent deal as part of any arrangement, as reported by the London Evening Standard.

Mauricio Pochettino, head coach, is thought to want to let the midfielder leave White Hart Lane, but is not particularly keen to just let him leave on loan.

Paulinho cost Spurs £17 million when he joined them in the summer of 2013.

There are a series of clubs thought to be interesting in signing him, including his former side Corinthians.

Cruzeiro, Inter Milan and Schalke are also keen on his signature, but all sides are only willing to sign him on an initial loan until the end of the season.

The fact Paulinho earns £60,000 a week would also be a problem for the two Brazilian sides and Inter.

While chairman Daniel Levy wants to recoup as much of the fee Spurs paid out as possible, but is aware that might be difficult.

Spurs Set To Agree £12m Deal For Midfielder With Giants – reports

Tottenham Hotspur are set to agree a deal with Inter Milan for misfit midfielder Paulinho ahead of the January transfer window, with the star out of the manager’s plans.

Inter are confident of securing a deal for the Premier League player, who has struggled to impress since joining the club last summer.

Mauricio Pochettino is not believed to see him as part of his plans going forward, and is hoping to get him off the books.

Inter’s sporting director Piero Ausilio has travelled to London ahead of talks about a possible deal between the two under performing sides, according to the Mirror.

The Italian giants are hopeful of putting together a loan deal that will see Paulinho move to the club until the end of the season, with the option to make the transfer permanent for £12 million at the end of the season.

Pochettino has only given Paulinho one appearance for the club in all competitions this season.
