The number one concern at White Hart Line for now is keeping hold of Gareth Bale – but in the shadow of his possible departure this summer, Spurs have picked up one of the most coveted midfielders in Brazil.

Paulinho is capable of just about anything – he can pass, shoot, tackle and bust his guts all day long. His arrival is critical to revamping Tottenham in the middle of the park; a signing André Villas-Boas desperately needed to mount anything close to a convincing title challenge next season.

The box-to-box running of the 25-year-old will be vital to ensuring Gareth Bale can replicate the form he enjoyed last term – minus the unhealthy dependence on the Welshman.
