Roma could reportedly be looking to make a move for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Paulinho.

Serie A side Roma could make a summer move for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Paulinho, according to a report in the Italian press.

Il Tempo claims that the Rome club will make a bid for the Brazilian should they be unable to keep hold of highly-rated playmaker Miralem Pjanic.

It is believed that Roma would look to make a loan move for the player, with a view to a permanent deal the following year.

The 25-year-old moved to Spurs from Corinthians for £17m in the summer of 2013.
