Paulinho has previously revealed he is considering an offer from Spurs, but prefers to wait until after his national team duties at the Confederations Cup are complete before making a decision on his future.

Now, the 24-year-old has praised the club and the philosophy of manager Andre Villas-Boas.

"Tottenham have a reputation as one of the great clubs in England, who play exciting, attacking football which suits my style.

"I couldn’t turn them down if they made me an offer. It would be a fantastic opportunity," he is quoted as saying in the English press.

Reports have also linked Chelsea with a late move for Paulinho, however it seems he would prefer a move to White Hart Lane.
