Paulinho heading for Tottenham!

Posted on June 14, 2013 by Guest Writer

Another midfielder that would seem to be the type of player that would improve this Tottenham squad, coming from Brazil he would also make some sense in view of the interest AVB took in the players of the country when shunted from the Chelsea job. Paulinho is of course no stranger to England as he of course scored the equaliser during the  recent friendly between the two countries.

The player apparently has a release clause in his contract with Corinthians the equivalent of something like £17m, so he is very affordable and would seem to be another target in the Fredy Gaurin mould although a few years younger. If these targets are real and Tottenham are truly in the market for another predominantly central midfielder then the future for Scott Parker Jake Livermore and Tom Huddlestone at Tottenham would appear bleak. Tottenham have the likes of Sandro, Dembele, Holtby, Sigurdsson and Carroll all vying for a position in what might become a midfield three, another purchase would bring that complement up to the number required to be able to rotate and provide adequate cover.

It is doubtful that there will be a huge influx of new players for this coming season although there has to be 2 or 3 simply to improve and realistically close on the teams ahead of Tottenham at the moment, a couple with huge potential might be brought in if they can be acquired at a decent price and terms but that apart why change too much off the back of a record breaking Tottenham season. AVB knows where he needs to improve, as do most supporters to a lesser extent, and it is certain that the work is well underway to bring in the players  needed to take the club to the next level. To be spoken of as a club linked with a player like Paulinho is encouraging as it was just 18months ago when free transfers like Saha and Nelsen signed up.

Gareth Barry apart most of the players linked to Tottenham would seem to be an improvement on some within the squad at present, until such time as announcements have been made it remains speculation, it is likely that once the official opening date of the transfer market, 1st July, is behind us things will start to happen in earnest.

    This fella would make up a fantastic midfield three, just hope it comes off. Seems really powerful runner and has an eye for goal. £14/15m is a bargain for a 24yr old Brazilian international. Sandro, Paulinho and Dembele awesome.
