Kia Joorabchian says Inter Milan face competition for Corinthians midfielder Paulinho.

Paulinho has confirmed he rejected a bumper contract offer from Inter last month.

Joorabchian, whose company is handling Paulinho's affairs, revealed: "I think he will move in the summer. He's a player similar to Lampard or Gerrard, a midfielder for all areas. He will end up in a big club.

"He's already been linked to Inter, AC Milan and several English clubs.

"It's up to him to decide where to play, whether in Italy or Spain to England."
