According to Metro, Andre Villas-Boas is set to bid £14.5 million for Brazilian holding midfielder Paulinho.
The Corinthians star, who helped his side win the Club World Championship in December 2012, is currently away on international duty with Brazil.
He's set for a starting role in Luiz Felipe Scolari's side, and that could drive his price up even further.
On Thursday, Metro also reported that Spurs had put 10 players up for sale.
Chelsea are likely to sign Marco van Ginkel this summer, with Ajax admitting they cannot compete on a financial level for the Vitesse Arnhem star.
The story, run by Darren Lewis of the Mirror, comes as no great shock to world football fans, and the Dutch Talent of the Year winner of 2013 is widely expected to finalise a move to the Blues.
There's every chance that they would loan him back out, á la Kevin De Bruyne, so perhaps Ajax's hopes aren't dead in the water just yet.
A report from talkSPORT says that Internazionale are keen admirers of Manchester City's Aleksandar Kolarov.
The Serbian international has fallen beneath Gael Clichy in the pecking order at left-back, and his solid season started to falter when Roberto Mancini abandoned the 3-5-2 formation.
Kolarov would find stiff competition for playing time at the San Siro too, given the presence of Alvaro Pereira and Yuto Nagatomo, but his career in Manchester does appear to have gone stale.
According to Voetbal Primeur, via InsideFutbol, Stoke City have opened negotiations with PSV Eindhoven over the transfer of Erik Pieters.
Pieters, an infamous left-back due to his rage fits and glass-punching exploits, would represent a major coup for Mark Hughes as the ideal first summer signing.
He'd be a step away from long-ball football and a step toward keeping it on the floor.
Mauricio Isla's dismal time at Juventus is set to finish, as Sky Sports is reporting he's moving to Internazionale in a co-ownership deal.
Coming off a bad injury, Isla struggled to make the desired impact at the Bianconeri and found himself playing second fiddle to Stephan Lichtsteiner, the "MVP" midfield and even Paul Pogba.
The Chilean is a fantastic player given a run of games and fitness, and Inter may just have made one of the signings of the summer.
According to talkSPORT, Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan has confirmed Owen Coyle is set to be his club's next manager.
Barcelona's first Samir Handanovic bid has failed, report talkSPORT, with owner Massimo Moratti demanding €30 million for his star goalkeeper.
Claudio Marchisio is a Juventini through and through, but Gazzetta dello Sport, via Fox Sports, report he is proud to be linked with Manchester United.
The Independent believe Antolin Alcaraz will become Roberto Martinez's first Everton signing.
Finally, for something a little different, Turkish-Football.com has suggested Trabzonspor are on the verge of signing Batuhan Karadeniz.
