The Spurs midfielder was signed for £16 million in 2012 but is not in new manager Pochettino’s plans.
Brazil giants Corinthians have reportedly expressed an interest in bringing the player back to Brazil.
Corinthians was the same side that sold Paulinho to Spurs, and if they got him back it would likely be for much less than the £16 million they received.
At the very least a loan move is expected in January. It would give Paulinho a chance to force his way back into the Brazil set up.
