Report: Spurs line up move for 25-goal ace

Tottenham Hotspur are lining up a move for Braga striker Paulinho, according to 90min.

Jose Mourinho’s side are in the market for a new striker in the summer as they look to provide support to Harry Kane.

Mourinho admitted earlier this week that he hopes to sign a forward before the transfer deadline in October.

And it appears that Paulinho has been targeted as a possible acquisition.

90min reports that the forward, who scored 25 goals in 48 appearances in all competitions last season, would cost less than £30m and is viewed as an attainable target.

Let's start off with an easy one, just to get that finger working...

Wolves were previously linked with a move for Paulinho but opted against it, instead signing Fabio Silva from Porto.

And that may have opened the door for Spurs to swoop as they look to finally bolster their forward line.

Spurs had opted against bids for both Callum Wilson and Ollie Watkins, the report states, and they instead joined Newcastle and Aston Villa respectively.

A bid could be forthcoming for Paulinho, though, especially after Mourinho addressed the situation in public earlier this week.

New blood is needed; the wait cannot go on.
