Tottenham target Paulinho refutes transfer rumours
Corinthians star Paulinho has rubbished reports claiming his agent is in England to discuss a summer switch.
The 24-year-old has been strongly linked with a move away from his homeland, with Tottenham Hotspur said to be leading the chase for his signature.
However, Paulinho has now insisted he is not the subject of the rumoured talks, as reported on Sky Sports.
He told Terra on Bertolucci's visit to England: "He is not negotiating. Giuliano has many clients. I am not the only one.
"He is in England, admittedly, but he works for many players.
"They say that Giuliano is working for me to leave Corinthians, but that is not the case.
"He has his work with other players and I don't understand why people persist with this story."
Chelsea, Inter and Roma are also said to be interested in Paulinho, who is currently on Seleção duty at the Confederations Cup.
The box-to-box midfielder has a contract with the Timão until 2015.
