Chelsea & Tottenham on alert for Brazilian ace

Chelsea and Tottenham could revive their interest in Zenit Saint-Petersburg’s Hulk amid speculation that he will be allowed to move in the summer, according to reports from The Express.

The Brazilian ace is currently one of Russian football’s biggest names, but he has long been unsettled at his current club since joining them from Porto.

Now with manager Luciano Spalletti having been sacked, the player is ready to call time on his spell at Zenit.

The giants’ decision to axe their coach has upset Hulk, who is believed to have already voiced his displeasure to the Gazprom-backed side’s hierarchy.

As a result they will not make a significant effort to block the powerful striker’s exit, so long as an offer of around £40m is made.

FIFA agent Shandor Varga believes that Hulk is likely to move and that despite his valuation interest from England will be high:

“Despite the transfer fee required to land Hulk, don’t rule out that he may move to one of the top European championships.

“English clubs still have the highest chance of acquiring him. For the UK’s leading teams €50m (£40m) is not much money.

“In the Premier League clubs earn huge amounts and even such a substantial sum will not be a big problem for them.”

Chelsea and Tottenham have both been linked with Hulk in recent times, and could look to make him the marquee signing for the summer.
