Ex-Arsenal defender Keown feels Spurs overpaid for Paulinho

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown feels Tottenham overpaid for Paulinho.

Keown was asked about the Brazilian in a Twitter Q&A with the Daily Mail.

"I saw him in the summer at the Confederations Cup and I was quite surprised Spurs paid that much money for him. He was one of the most 'un-Brazilian' players I had seen. He sat deep in midfield for his national side, but of the two Brazilian central midfielders to arrive in England this summer, Fernandinho was the better of the two."
