Reds want to end Paulinho’s Tottenham nightmare…
Read more Liverpool transfer news.
Liverpool are interested in bringing Paulinho to Anfield, CaughtOffside reports.
The Brazilian international arrived at White Hart Lane last summer, when Tottenham splashed out £17m on his services, following an impressive Confederations Cup campaign.
However, since Tim Sherwood took over as boss before Christmas especially, the 25-year-old has struggled to get into the side. The English boss has in fact preferred to start Nabil Bentaleb, much to the dismay of many Spurs fans.
The player himself recently admitted to being unhappy in north London, fuelling rumours of a summer departure.
The Reds currently have Jordan Henderson, ageing captain Steven Gerrard, Lucas and Joe Allen competing for midfield positions, but Brendan Rodgers wants reinforcements ahead of next season’s probably Champions League campaign.
Paulinho would add numbers and strength to the squad, but it remains to be seen whether Spurs would be willing to sell to a rival.
