Barcelona's bid to purchase Paulinho from Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande has been rejected.
The Chinese Super League side have issued a statement saying they have turned down an offer of £22m for their 28-year-old midfielder.
Paulinho, who spent two years at Tottenham, signed a new extended deal with Guangzhou Evergrande in January of this year.
The Brazilian left White Hart Lane for China in the summer of 2015.
