Barcelona have joined the race to sign Brazil international midfielder Paulinho from Guangzhou Evergrande, according to media reports.

Paulinho's agent, Giuliano Bertolucci, has been contacted by Blaugrana officials following the 28-year-old's hat-trick in Brazil's 4-1 victory over Uruguay in a World Cup qualifier last month.

Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich and Italian Serie A club AC Milan have also made inquiries to Bertolucci, according to Brazil's Uol news service, which cited unnamed sources with knowledge of the negotiations.

Paulinho has scored 10 goals in 67 matches for Guangzhou since joining the Chinese club from Tottenham Hotspur in 2015.

Under the coaching of former Brazil boss Luiz Felipe Scolari, Paulinho has helped Guangzhou win two consecutive Chinese Super League titles.
