Tottenham midfielder Paulinho has admitted that he has received offers from other clubs and revealed that he will make a decision on his future when he returns to England at the start of July.
The out-of-favour Brazilian midfielder, who joined the north London club in 2013 from Corinthians in his home country, has struggled for game time under Mauricio Pochettino and is now considered to be surplus to requirements at the club.
Paulinho, who was considered one of the midfield lynchpins at the club in his first season, made 15 appearances during the 2014/15 campaign, but only played the entire 90 minutes on two occasions. The Argentine manager has preferred home grown talents Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason over the Brazil international.
The 26-year-old midfielder told Lancenet that former club Corinthians will be first choice if he returns to his homeland, but insists that he is open to joining other clubs around Europe as well.
"I received concrete offers that I will talk to my agent. I am sure that by the date of my return to England [2 July] I'll decide my future," Paulinho said, as translated by Tutto Mercato Web.
"A stay at Tottenham? Depend on what I will be proposed. If there will be some better option will change the team."
"The Corinthians? I've always admitted that the Timao would be my first choice, but I am a professional and I have to consider each hypothesis. I never said that I would never play for another team," the Spurs midfielder explained.
According to the Daily Mail, Watford are keen on taking the Brazilian international to Vicarage Road following their promotion to the Premier League earlier in the year.
Apart from Paulinho, they are also looking at teammate Etienne Capoue, who has fallen out-of-favour at White Hart Lane, with Premier League new boys looking to add some experience at the heart of their midfield.
