Corinthians have moved to dismiss rumours that midfielder Paulinho could be on the move this summer, with Tottenham said to be interested.

The Brazilian, who is currently away on international duty ahead of the Confederations Cup which gets underway today, has previously been courted by the likes of Chelsea, Roma and Inter Milan.

However Tottenham appear to be moving closer towards a deal for the 24-year-old, who impressed against Chelsea as he helped his side win the Club World Cup in December.

Spurs are said to be in talks with the player’s agent, who Paulinho confirmed was in London this week.

But Corinthians' president Mário Gobbi has informed Brazilian newspaper Folha de S. Paulo that neither Tottenham or any other club have made a bid for the box-to-box midfielder as yet.

Paulinho is believed to have a €20 million transfer clause written into his contract which Tottenham will have to activate to secure his services.

Spurs appear keen on raiding Brazil for new signings this summer, with Atletico Mineiro’s Bernard and Internacional’s Leandro Damiao also said to be on the north London club’s radar.
