Paulinho has impressed in China for Guangzhou Evergrande
Monday, August 7, 2017
Barcelona have reignited their interest in former Tottenham midfielder Paulinho .
The Brazilian, who currently plays for Guangzhou Evergrande, was heavily linked with a move to the Camp Nou earlier on in the summer but a deal did not materialise.
The Chinese transfer window is now shut too and it was thought that would kill off any chance of a move happening.
However, according to Sport, Paulinho’s hopes of securing a switchÂ to Barcelona have increased as a deal is back on the table.
The Spanish giants are reportedÂ to have reopened talks with Guangzhou Evergrande in the wake of losing Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain.
The forward’s departure for the French side means Barca now have Â£200m to spend and they are ready to part with some of that to get Paulinho.
