Sao Paulo, Corinthians chasing Tottenham outcast Paulinho

Sao Paulo and Corinthians are chasing Tottenham midfielder Paulinho.

The Mirror says the 26-year-old has become increasingly frustrated with life on the fringes to alert sides in his native South America.

Sao Paulo are keen to entice Paulinho back home while neighbours Corinthians, who banked £17million from his sale last year, are also showing an interest.

His £70,000-a-week wages at White Hart Lane could prove a stumbling block in any potential move but Corinthians sporting director Edu Gaspar said: "The door is open for Paulinho as he is still very popular here. I don't think the financial package would be an issue."
