The 24-year-old arrived in the country on Thursday and is set to begin his medical on Friday morning, according to the BBC.

He will then meet manager Andre Villas-Boas and chairman Daniel Levy to complete the details of his contract ahead of a transfer which is reportedly worth £17 million for Corinthians.

Paulinho, also a target of Real Madrid, scored 34 goals in 167 games for the Brazilian club and played a key part in their Copa Libertadores and World Club Cup successes.

He also has 17 Brazil caps and five international goals, scoring in the host nation's successful Confederations Cup defence - in the opener against Japan and the semi-final versus Uruguay.
