Paulinho’s agent is ’95 per cent’ certain his client will leave Livorno and join a team abroad.
The striker netted 15 times for the Granata in Serie A last season, and was hugely impressive despite the team finishing bottom of the table.
As such, the goalscorer’s representative is almost certain the player will leave to sign for a team outside Italy.
“At the moment, there is still nothing concrete,” Eugenio Ascari told TuttoUdinese.
“I’ve read in the newspapers about the interest from Torino, Udinese and Palermo – I’m delighted to hear those rumours.
“But only when there’s something concrete will I comment properly. Every day there is new rumour, but we’re still early in the transfer window.
“I think Livorno will only accept between €9m-€10m, so therefore it’ll be tough for an Italian club to get him.
“I’m 95 per cent sure that he’ll go abroad.”
