Amid reported links to Torino, Aldo Spinelli has set Livorno’s asking price for Brazilian forward Paulinho: “€10m cash.”
The Brazilian is almost certain to leave the relegated Amaranto this summer after impressing during 2013-14 and managing 15 League goals in the process.
The latest reports are that Torino’s search for a replacement for Ciro Immobile has led them to the 28-year-old.
Whilst Southampton are also thought to be tracking the forward this summer, Livorno’s President has made clear the terms that interested parties will have to come to the table with.
“On the Paulinho front everything is still, not a leaf moves,” Spinelli has told Tuttosport.
“If Torino want Paulinho, then they have to give me €10m in cash, we do not need technical counterparts in any deal [players in exchange].”
