Brazilian boosts survival hopes by signing extension with Livorno
With constant speculation linking the 27-year-old with a move away from the Amaranto the club can now focus on preparations for their return to Serie A action.
“The club Amaranto and Paulinho signed a new agreement that will see them remain together until June 2018.” Livorno announced on its official website.
However, with his previous deal expiring in 2015 the man that has now scored 48 times in 148 appearances for the club was attracting interest from top Serie A sides Inter and Napoli, as well as Premier League side Tottenham.
