Paulinho Confirms £17million Move From Corinthians to Tottenham: Nightly Soccer Report

In a tearful goodbye, Paulinho had a press reference today to say goodbye to Corinthians as he confirmed he’s heading to Tottenham Hotspur in a £17million deal.

The 24-year-old midfielder, who was one of the many stars on the Brazilian team who won the Confederations Cup, travels to London this week to take his medical and to finalize the deal with Spurs.

Here’s what Paulinho said about moving to Tottenham:

“The other interest we got was from Inter Milan but the only offer came from Tottenham. The proposal came, we sat down, analysed it and decided. It was a big decision to go to a big club. There comes a certain point when you need new challenges.”

This is certainly a statement of intent by Tottenham Hotspur to capture the signing of such a great midfielder. Now they need to focus on signing a quality striker to complete their needs. What are your thoughts about signing Paulinho, and should Arsenal fans be concerned that on the same day Paulinho is heading to White Hart Lane, Arsenal sign a French youngster on a free transfer from a Ligue 2 side?
