Tottenham transfer flop is expected to join Serie A in the summer

PaulinhoTottenham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern know it is only a matter of time before their transfer flop leaves White Hart Lane after talkSPORT revealed Fiorentina are favourites to land Paulinho.

The Brazilian midfielder has failed to live up to his £17 million after his move from Corinthians in July 2013.

He was one of the signings which was funded by the sale of Gareth Bale and he has only started three Premier League games this season.

So it is no surprise to hear that Mauricio Pochettino is keen to get him out of the club as he looks to rebuild the squad in the summer.

The 26-year-old has a long career ahead of him and the Serie A squad are keen to strike a deal with the North London club.

With Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb coming through the ranks, it is clear that Paulinho has a slim future at Spurs and it seems as though he is as keen to Pochettino for him to walk through the exit door.

Tottenham fans. Do you think Paulinho has been a disappointment or has he been unfairly treated? Let us know your thoughts below!
