Tottenham are in talks today with representatives of Corinthians midfielder Paulinho.

The Mirror says Andre Villas-Boas is desperate to sign the Corinthians man, whose agent Giuliano Bertolucci is in London to negotiate a Premier League move.

"It's true my agent is in England at the moment, but I don't know anything else," said the 24-year-old.

"I am certain he will tell me what's going on soon."
