Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be keeping close tabs on the forward.

Diego Simeone's side are said to have already had a £12million bid for Paulinho rejected.

Vasco say their most prized asset has a £25m buyout clause.

Paulinho broke into Vasco's first team last year and was named young player of the Brasileiro Serie A championship last week, say the Daily Mail.

The latest hot talent on the Brazilian production line has been capped 21 times at Under-17s level for his country.

His versatility is said to be admired, playing just as well on the wing as he does up top on his own.

Another distinction he holds is being the first player born in 2000 to score in the Copa Libertadores.

It is believed Carlos Leite, Paulinho's agent, was in England last week.

The Premier League champions think they will lose 16-year-old striker Bobby Duncan to Liverpool when his contract runs out.

And they have reportedly looked at a possible deal for Barcelona teenager Adria Bernabe.
