Are Chelsea Readying A Move For Spurs' Paulinho?

Paulinho hasn't been at Spurs for long, but if Chelsea have their way he might be off already, according to The Telegraph.

The Brazilian international arrived for £17 million from Corinthians last summer after starring in the Confederations Cup, but he's been in and out of the side and Spurs have yet to see his best form.

Chelsea are believed to be willing to let David Luiz go, and see his compatriot as the ideal replacement. The 25-year-old is also being watched by Roma and AC Milan. Paulinho admitted he was frustrated with his first season in England last month, saying: "“I understand the team rotation because that's how it works here, but I am not feeling well or comfortable. I want to be present, I want to play."

Spurs have been heavily linked with a move for Romelu Lukaku, so there could be a deal to be struck which suits all parties here.
