However, the Potters are not without a rival as Abu Dhabi club Al Jazira have also expressed their desire to secure the services of the former Juventude man.
"Al Jazira have already spoken with Paulinho, but Stoke City also want him and there are also a couple of other English clubs" Spinelli told Gazzetta dello Sport.
"We will take the decision which is best for everyone together."
"What I can say is that the negotiations (with AL Jazira) have started and in the coming hours we will know more about this, with everything still open, and talk to the player to work out the best opportunity."
