Chelsea defender David Luiz is backing Tottenham target Paulinho for success in England.

The Corinthians midfielder has confirmed his intention to move to Spurs this summer.

"If he gets to play in England, he will definitely go far", he told

"His game fits perfectly with the pace of English football.

"It's incredibly valuable to have someone like that in your side. Especially when the team (Brazil) is getting along together as well as ours is."
