Porto striker Hulk has given Chelsea a major boost by admitting Stamford Bridge is his preferred destination, according to the Daily Mail.

The report claims the Brazilian hitman is likely to leave Portugal this summer and has attracted interest from some of Europe’s top clubs after another excellent season at the Estádio do Dragão.

Chelsea and PSG are thought to be the clubs leading the race for the 25-year-old, who has scored an impressive 73 goals in his 96 appearances for the Portuguese outfit.

The European champions hopes of signing the striker appeared to be dented earlier this week when PSG made contact with Hulk’s agent and declared they would be willing to pay around £43m for his services, £13m more than Chelsea have so far been willing to pay.

However, Hulk is quoted in the Mail as saying he would welcome a move to Chelsea but insists the matter is in the hands of his current club Porto:

‘Chelsea are the current European champions and would please any player and I’m no exception. I’d be happy if the transfer happened.

‘I leave everything in the hands of Porto. I am under contract and I have been happy at Porto for four years, where I have achieved everything.

‘I’ll have the club in my heart no matter what happens this summer or in any other summer.’

Roman Abramovich wants Hulk as a replacement for Didier Drogba, who joined Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua on a free transfer this week.

    Hulk is the perfect replacement for Drogba. Torres is an epileptic human being and he can switch off at any point in time.

    right wing is the one position we need to make the first team excellent, we got ramires & sturridge who done a job there last season but its neither of there favoured position so hulk would be a perfect fit ! id prefere angel dimaria , mario gotze or lucas moura but id still be very happy with hulk(handy that he could play cf if needed) next season starting x1 4-2-3-1 cech – cole terry luiz ivanovic – hazard mata hulk – torres subs , sturridge lukaku marin malouda ramires essien meireles romeu bertrand cahill new RB

    Guys don’t worry because next season if we have Hulk on our team , we have got an advantage in the champions league because that trophy has never been defended before and if we do defend it then we would be the first team to do it. l am proud of seeing Dimatteo in-charge next season Thank you Abramovic

    pls sign hulk bcoz there is no strong left footer like him in the world. He can destroy defender and score bad goals with his two foots. Just sign a defender and mr hulk dats all. The team is full and o.k with the like of marin german messi and mr ronaldo hazard with moses on his way to chelsea. Up bluez 4life.
