Bayer Leverkusen's Paulinho has attracted interest from Sporting CP, who want to take the winger on loan, according to Kicker.

The 19-year-old has struggled to live up to the expectations at BayArena following his €18,5 million move from Brazilian side Vasco da Gama and made just 15 appearances during his first season in Germany.

During pre-season, Leverkusen boss Peter Bosz praised Paulinho after testing him out in offensive midfield, but also stressed the youngster has a lot to learn, and it therefore seems conceivable that he could head out on loan.
