Corinthians midfielder Paulinho insists he won't make his mind up over his future until after the Confederations Cup - but hinted he could fancy a move to Italy.
Roma and Inter Milan have been credited with an interest in the midfielder, along with a host of Premier League clubs.
Paulinho has recently been linked with a move to Tottenham after he confirmed his agent was in London.
Spurs are reportedly keeping an eye on the Brazilian midfielder and are hopeful of securing his services, with a bid of around €20 million required in order to activate a release clause in his contract.
Paulinho who starred for Corinthians against Chelsea in the Club World Cup, said that while his agent was in London his future won't be on the agenda until the end of the Confederations Cup in Brazil.
"All I am hearing is blah, blah, blah. My agent is in London right now, but he is not discussing me – he has other clients."
The 24-year-old went on to add however that both Roma and Inter Milan are clubs 'where any player would want to be' - seemingly striking a blow to Tottenham's hopes of landing him.
"Roma are a prestigious club. A champion such as Paulo Roberto Falcao wore their shirt, a player I have always admired.
"Roma and Inter are clubs where any player would want to be, but you’ll see that nothing will happen until after the Confederations Cup."
Paulinho's future will become clearer after the Confederations Cup final on June 30, or sooner if Brazil exit the tournament early on home soil.
