Porto and Brazil forward Hulk is in discussions with Chelsea over a potential move to Stamford Bridge this summer, according to BBC Sport, but despite the fact they have gone with the headline ‘Hulk in discussions with Chelsea’ the quotes they use only suggest there’s interest.

However, it’s believed the player wants the move and the club wants the player, so this should be straightforward, no?

The player has been linked to the Blues for some time now but there may finally be some movement if the two clubs agree a fee. At the moment it would seem as though Porto are asking for more than Chelsea are willing to offer, but the player may attempt to force a move by submitting a transfer request, according to Football Talk who source the Times.

Teodoro Fonseca, Hulk’s agent, said:

“There hasn’t been an official proposal so far. There has been a lot of interest in him, but it has yet to go further than that.

“All that should change next week. Besides Chelsea, there are four more English clubs interested in him.

“Porto will not let him go easily. His release clause is 100m euros [£80m], but ultimately it is the player’s wish to take on another challenge that will make the difference.

“Those are the words of Porto’s directors. They have said as much, and will not stand in his way, so though it will not be easy for those English clubs financially, there is room for negotiation. We can sort everything out, I am sure.”

It’s thought that Chelsea want to bolster their options in attack, especially as Ivorian duo Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou are to leave the club. The 25-year-old can play as a forward but mostly operates out on the wing and has 21 goals in 38 games for Porto this season.

Do you think Hulk could be an incredible signing for Chelsea and would you like to see him line-up alongside the likes of Fernando Torres and Juan Mata in a new look attack at Stamford Bridge? – Have your say in the comments section below

    Yes I think he would be a great signing if we pay no more than 40m he’s strong, skilful good finisher and he sets up goals for his striker proven when playing with Falcao. Should adapt well as we have a few brazillians. I think the ultimate would be too get him aswell as hazard and they can interchange wings, that will also give us great strength in depth on the wings with hulk hazard Sturridge Marin. I may be living in a dream tho but you never know

    Please we don’t need him,he’s too expensive and he will cause distraction for torres,benayoun is coming back,let’s release essien nd get a better midfielder,datz all we need

    • Anthony Williams says:

      Benayoun? I don’t think he has a future at Chelsea at all. We’ve already taken his number off him and gave it to someone that deserves it.

      This could just be my irrational hatred of Benayoun speaking, but I reckon he’d be sold this summer and the club will actively offer him to other clubs to make sure this happens.

      We can release Essien and buy a midfielder, but this would not solve the lack of wingers


    It is said to be that Hulk is a very good player and worth for Chelsea FC to tender him as quality player to be added for this coming season,so it is going to be a very reasonable worth of changing a new era of Chelsea after winning the champion of Europe.

    Chelsea should pls go for the trio of kagawa,van Der wiel and doumbia.which will add quality and depth to d hazard should be left alone,who does he think he is?messing with the teams interested in his service,doumbia,kagawa and van Der wiel will do and we won’t even spend much on them compared to what will be spent on hazard,hulk or Lucas,I would also like courtois to be brought back to provide cover for Petr cech……..
