The Daily Star claim that Mancini is closing in on a deal to sign White Hart Lane midfielder Paulinho.

The 26 year old enjoyed a relatively solid debut season at Spurs but is clearly not part of Mauricio Pochettino’s plans, the Brazilian having not started a single Premier League start under the Argentine.

The north London side paid £17m to sign Paulinho 18 months ago so one imagines it will take a decent sized bid to land the former Corinthians star.

Mancini also wants to bring in winger Aaron Lennon according to the Daily Mirror.

The pint-sized wide-man is some way below his best and has flattered to deceive for a few seasons now and is behind the likes of Christian Eriksen, Nacer Chadli and Erik Lamela in Pochettino’s pecking order and has started just three Premier league fixtures this term.

Having spent nearly a decade at Tottenham the former Leeds United man may be open to a fresh challenge that could help revive the England international’s career.
