Paulinho has been widely quoted as saying that a move to Tottenham would be a "dream" and that he hopes to wrap up a transfer as soon as possible after the tournament.
"It is important for the team and for the Brazilian fans that at the moment all my focus is on winning the Confederations Cup," he said.
"But after the tournament is finished, I hope it is a deal that can get finalised quickly.
"To play in England for a great team like Tottenham is a dream. What I respect about Tottenham is the ambition they have shown.
"This summer there has been interest in their coach and their best player - and they have been clear they are both not going anywhere."
