Chelsea Now Ready To Do Deal For Hulk?

Even though media reports are flooding in about the impending arrival of Jose Mourinho, reports from Russia suggest offers have been made for Zenit St. Petersburg striker Hulk by two Premier League clubs, one of whom is reportedly Chelsea.

Mourinho’s arrival is set to be confirmed by the club this week but transfers are happening even without the new boss in place officially. Metro is reporting that though Chelsea’s interest in Hulk is well known his agent, Teodoro Fonseca is currently suggesting that he has conducted serious discussions with a couple of English teams.

‘There are two great teams of the Premier League to have made their interest known,’ said Fonseca.

Seemingly Hulk will cost a pretty penny with Zenit only willing to consider bids north of £40million which does seem a little steep for a guy who has only scored 7 goals in 18 matches so far.

As the Blues are ready to confirm the highly awaited signing of Andre Schurrle from Bayer Leverkusen, Abramovich is keen on building a side which will challenge for the world’s top honors, including the UEFA Champions League. The Blues were knocked out in this year’s competition early in the group stages, but went on to win the UEFA Europa League, thanks to the efforts of interim boss Rafael Benitez.

Despite signing Eden Hazard, who was wanted by both Manchester clubs and Chelsea, the club’s transformation is still in motion, with young stars being tipped to arrive at the club. With fan favorite Mourinho arriving this year, Abramovich wants to leave no stone unturned. A similar buying spree was seen at Mourinho’s first spell at the club, when the club spent handsomely on stars from around Europe.

Hulk has had a controversial year at Zenit, with reports of players being unhappy about his high wages and he himself feeling out of sorts with life in Russia. The striker also had a reported rift with the club’s coach Luciano Spalletti, and is keen on leaving the club in this window. Manchester City, Real Madrid and a reunion with AVB at Tottenham have all also been mentioned as possible destinations for the Brazilian forward. Hulk would certainly be a big name signing but is he what Chelsea really need?

    Hulk at 26 for £40 is not encouraging, chelsea should use Torres with cash and get Cavani or even Jovetic since Lewandoski is not available or any other good striker because i trust Mourinho.

    please roman swap toress with hulk and give 20 million but dont buy for 40 million because its very huge amount hulk values 30 million so bargain him but he is good in skills and strong of ability to play in chelsea team better than cavani and dont let mourinioh decide he will waste the money spending on waste pepole get hulk and lendowski and schurrle that is enough for striking force

  • Stanley kelvin Says:

    Pls abrahamovic shuld go for cavani or better stil swap torres to zenith nd collect Hulk for 20m because we cnt afford to spend so much on a 26yrs player is nt a gud deal at al

  • chibuzor from onitsha Says:

    pls lampard is not geting younger any more he has to be replaced and also they should give romeo chanc to prove him self in the deffencive area we are sick and tired of mikels back pass we need some one that will push the attack like de rose or romieo

  • chibuzor from onitsha Says:

    why cavani while have lukaku, torres and ba please let us be patient with this guyz are we sale them if we really believe that they do not have what it takes to be in our club instead of wasting their careers on the bench lets look at sturridge of liverpool that same sturridge that was rejected has turned in to one the best players of liverpool lets pe patients with them and give them the chance to prove there worth up chelsea for life

  • Dimmylalah Says:

    I believe hulk is not worth £40m in anyway. Besides Chelsea have d striking force they need already. All we have to do is bring back Lukaku who has been fantastic throughout last season at westbrom then try a 4-4-2 formation which will future torres and ba or lukaku. Torres work rate toward ending of this season shows that he is working hard to come in form and Mourinho is here to give him that extra motivation he needs. All cfc needs is to strenghten the defensive midfield and attacking midfield that’s all and we will become a TEAM to FEAR next coming season.
