Chelsea have patiently scoured the world for a striker worthy of the hefty salaries paid out by Roman Abramovich and after a futile 2 year search they have returned to one of their earliest targets- Hulk. The Metro reports that the Brazilian attacker is back on Chelsea’s after a couple of years in the Russian wilderness with Zenit St. Petersburg, with the radar being simulated by the 27 year old’s agent Shandor Varga. Hulk has never been happy at Zenit despite the hefty €60m spent on him by the Russian giants, thus he has appeared in the tabloids during every transfer window since.

Chelsea’s striking woes have been so bad that Jose Mourinho was even caught on a secret tape ridiculing his forward trio, who have combined to plunder 14 goals in the Premier League all season. It is accepted knowledge that Samuel Eto’o, Fernando Torres and Demba Ba won’t be hanging around Stamford Bridge for too long.

London side Chelsea could be chasing Hulk, the Brazilian forward, in the summer. Chelsea’s problems due to misfiring strikers this season has seen them linked to many-a-strikers, and with the Metro reporting that the Zenit St. Petersburg hitman wants to leave his current club, Jose Mourinho might be setting his sights on the 27-year-old Brazilian in the summer.

Chelsea manager, Mourinho, has already claimed that his current crop of strikers will remain unchanged until the end of the season. However, with Samuel Eto’o quite possibly leaving the club after his 1-year contract expires in the summer, and Demba Ba widely touted to be on his way out of the club, the Blues will be on the lookout for a striker in the summer. While Hulk’s 21 goal return from his 46 appearances for the Russian team might not be the best, his record over the last 2 years of his stint at his ex-club Porto, where he scored 59 goals from 94 games, shows that he is a proven goal scorer.

Whatever lingering hopes Arsenal had of landing the much sought after Brazilian winger Bernard has now been dented even further, after his father confirmed that Bernard’s compatriot Hulk has recommended the Atletico Mineiro starlet to switch to Portuguese giants Porto.

Speaking to O Jogo, Bernard’s father Delio Duarte said, “Hulk has convinced Bernard that Porto would be better for him at this stage of his career." Confirming that Arsenal have yet to make an official approach for his son, he further added, “Nothing is decided yet but we know there is interest from Arsenal. However, there has been nothing official from them."

Nouveau riche, newly promoted Ligue-1 side AS Monaco have beaten Chelsea to another marquee signing this summer with the acquisition of Zenit St. Petersburg forward Hulk. The Brazil international, is about to complete a £52 million move to the French side according to Radio Monte Carlo.

The 26 year old had previously also been linked to the Blues but rejected them to join Russian club Zenit instead and has seemingly again rejected a move to the Premier League, choosing to move to Ligue 1 instead.

With spendthrift owner Roman Abramovich favouring almost every decision of Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, the latter seems ready to make a move for some of the biggest names on the European football circuit. Latest reports in The Daily Mirror suggest that with Abramovich’s backing, the Portuguese is on the verge of making an incredible bid of 35 million pounds for Brazilian forward Hulk.

The 26 year old had been on the radar of a number of top European clubs (which includes the Blues) last season too following four scintillating seasons at Porto. But his present club Zenit St Petersburg were successful in acquiring his signature after Porto’s price tag of 40 million pounds seemed too much for the English side.

Givanildo Vieira de Souza, better known to us as Hulk, completed a big money move from FC Porto to Zenit St. Petersburg for a massive £52 million last year. The Brazilian striker was on the wishlist of both Chelsea and Tottenham, but the London duo were priced out of a move for the 26 year old. However, his first season in freezing Russia has been a cold one for Hulk with the striker failing to hit top form, falling out with his manager, getting regularly booed by the fans and being despised by his considerably lesser paid teammates.

Right on cue, Hulk’s agent Teodoro Fonseca revealed to the Metro, that he was considering a move to friendlier climes, having been approached by Chelsea and Spurs. Fonseca said, “There are two great teams of the Premier League to have made their interest known. Tottenham? Those links are normal because it was with Andre Villas-Boas and Porto where Hulk had the best time”.
