Spurs paid £17m for 27 year old Paulinho two years ago and though the attacking midfielder had a solid debut campaign at White Hart Lane, he played a bit-part role under Mauricio Pochettino in 2014/15, making just three Premier League starts.

Paulinho was one of a host of signings brought in by former manager Andre Villas-Boas using funds accrued from the world record sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid and was arguably a far more competent performer than the likes of Roberto Soldado and Erik Lamela, the attacking pair both failing to come close to justifying their respective transfer fees.
