Tottenham Hotspur star Paulinho admits mulling over offers, future uncertain


Tottenham Hotspur star Paulinho could leave the club this summer.

Tottenham hotspur midfielder has conceded his future at the club is uncertain amid concrete offers from elsewhere, the Italian publication TMW report.

The Brazilian international featured sparsely under boss Mauricio Pochettino last summer, making just three Premier League starts and a further six appearances in the Europa League.

Since arriving from Corinthians in 2013, Paulinho has struggled to adapt to the English game and his future at the club has been highly speculated heading into the summer.

Speaking to reporters while away on a summer break, the 26-year-old has revealed he has received offers which he will mull over before deciding his future for when he returns to England on July 2.

"I have received concrete offers that I will talk about with my agent. I am sure that by the date of my return to England (July 2) I will have decided my future,” Paulinho explains.

“May I stay at Tottenham? It depends on what I am proposed. If there is a better option I will change teams. I've always admitted that Corinthians would be my first choice, but I am a professional and I have to consider each option.”

Does Paulinho have a future at Tottenham?

After struggling to initially adapt in North London, Paulinho found himself far down Pochettino’s midfield pecking order last season that it appears a change this summer is inevitable.

Spurs are looking to bolster their midfield ranks ahead of next season, suggesting that the club are already planning for the Brazilian’s exit and subsequent savings in wages.

After arriving in North London for a fee of just under £17 million, the club have little hope of getting back what they initially paid for him and he will go down as one of their least memorable signings.
