Hulk open to Chelsea switch
Zenit Saint-Petersburg striker Hulk has revealed that he would consider a move to the Premier League.
Chelsea are long-term admirers of the Brazilian international, and failed with two bids for his signature prior to his move to Russia.
Hulk completed a £40m swich to Zenit in September, but has failed to adjust to life at the club, prompting speculation that he could be on the move once again.
The Blues are believed to have made a striker their top priority this summer, as owner Roman Abramovich is said to have lost patience with Fernando Torres.
According to some reports, Hulk has requested a transfer at the end of the season, opening the door for a move.
The 26-year-old centre-forward confessed that the Premier League would be one of his preferred destinations, with Chelsea a genuine option:
“My future? I love the Premier League,” he is quoted by The Metro.
“The Premier League is a great competition with great clubs. If I have time, I watch the matches on television.”
Hulk would, likely, cost upwards of £45m, with Zenit keen to make a profit on the man they signed from Porto less than a year ago.
Chelsea are also believed to be keen on Atletico Madrid’s Radmel Falcao and Napoli star Edinson Cavani.
