Brazilian club Corinthians have yet to receive an offer for midfielder Paulinho despite reported interest from Tottenham Hotspur, Sky Sports reports.

The highly rated midfielder is also thought to have attracted interest from several other clubs, including Inter Milan, Roma and Shaktar Donetsk.

However, Corinthians President Mario Gobbi has said that no offers have been received from the Brazilian international, who recently featured in his country’s 2-2 draw with England at the Maracana.

“There have been no offers for Paulinho so far.” said Gobbi when asked about Paulinho.

Although Paulinho is aware of the interest from Europe he is staying focused on playing for his county at the Confederations Cup, while his agent talks to interested clubs in Europe.

Tottenham are in the market for a midfielder this summer as the presence of Luka Modric was sorely missed for the club last season.

Spurs have turned to Paulinho because Inter Milan midfielder Fredy Guarin is too expensive.

The Italian club are demanding £21 million for their attacking midfielder, about £6 million more than Spurs are willing to pay.

Along with Paulinho and Guarin, Spurs have been linked with a host of strikers, including Barcelona’s David Villa and Valencia’s Robert Soldado.
