The 24-year old has joined the north London club for a £17m from Brazilian club Corinthians.

Paulinho scored 34 goals in 167 appearances for the Brazilian club and scored five times for the national side in 17 appearances, including playing a major role in their 3-0 demolition of Spain in last Sunday’s Confederations Cup final.

“What I have to say to Corinthians fans, board and staff is ‘see you soon’” Paulinho said at a press conference though, suggesting that he will one day return to the club that has done so much fro his career.
