Jose Mourinho has earmarked a move for Inter Milan star Fredy Guarin but will switch his attention to the White Hart Lane star if he fails to sign the Colombian.

Tottenham’s poor form and the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas may well be motivating factors if indeed Paulinho is looking to leave the North London club.
Mourinho may see Paulinho as a preferable central midfield option to the likes of John Obi Mikel or Michael Essien though would have to offer markedly more than the £17m Tottenham paid Corinthians back in July to have any chance of persuading chairman Daniel Levy to sell.
