Brazil international Paulinho will join Barcelona after the club activated his €40 million buyout clause, reports in China claim.

The 29-year-old has spent the last two season playing in Asia for Chinese Super League leaders Guangzhou Evergrande after leaving Tottenham.

Sports360 gathered that the Catalans will fly the player in on Sunday to have his medicals.

Ernesto Valverde's side are looking to add to their squad following the world record €222m sale of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain last week.

The ex-Corinthians star has helped Luiz Felipe Scolari's side retain their position at the top of the league as well as reach the quarterfinals of the Asian Champions League.

"We don't want him to go but I'm happy for him as it's a chance of a lifetime," an unnamed Guangzhou payer was quoted on

"It is Barcelona. I'm happy for him as we have been brothers for the last two years."
