The race for reported Chelsea target Hulk is heating up, after his agent revealed that the blues are just one of a whole host of clubs interested in the Brazilian.
The 25 year-old striker has been linked with Chelsea since last summer, when a move was rumoured to be close to completion before collapsing at the last moment.
However, as reported by Sky Sports, the Champions League champions were back in pole position for the £38 million-rated Porto star, with speculation last month suggesting that a deal was close.
Hulk has since rebuffed such rumour, opting instead to leave transfer talk to his agent, Teodoro Fonseca, who has since claimed that a number of clubs have move for his client.
Fonseca said that any such move would depend on Porto, refusing to rule out chances of the powerful striker to remain in Portugal.
“The Blues [Chelsea] are not the only European club interested and at the moment, it all depends on Porto," Fonseca reportedly said.
Chelsea bosses will be hoping to add Hulk to their star-studded squad, as they embark on a period of rebuilding their attacking department following the departures of Didier Drogba and Saloman Kalou.
Hulk would fit that mould perfectly, having scored 57 goals in 91 appearances during the last two seasons for Porto.
Any deal would hinge on the stance of the Portuguese giants though. "I am in permanent contact with president Pinto Da Costa but there have been no advances on this subject. The club want him to stay and we have received the offer of a new deal,” continued Fonseca.
"If Hulk stays in Porto then there is no problem as he is happy in Porto. He has had three years of interest from big European clubs and he still plays in Portugal."
