Inter Milan target Paulinho loan

Paulinho close to Inter loan move

Inter Milan are reportedly inching closer to a loan deal for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Paulinho, according to The Mirror.

The Brazil international has failed to cement his place in the first-team under manager Mauricio Pochettino this season, with the likes of Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela, Etienne Capoue, Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason ahead of him in the pecking order.

The Mirror claims that the Nerazzurri director Piero Ausilio has flown to the Capital to hold talks with the North London outfit.

The report adds that Inter will try to sign Paulinho on loan, with an option of making the deal a permanent one for £12m next summer.
