TRANSFER NEWS: Spurs To Battle Man Utd For £27m ‘Hulk’
Tottenham Hotspur are targeting Porto’s fearsome striker, Hulk, as they look to reinforce their attacking options.
Having had his bids for Luis Fabiano, Giuseppe Rossi and Sergio Aguerro turned down in January, Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp is now setting his sighs on Porto’s star attacker, Givaldinho Hulk.
Hulk has been in terrific form for FC Porto so far this season, scoring a total of 21 goals in 23 games and is valued at around £27 million by the Portuguese club. FC Porto have recently responded to interest in their 24-year-old by renegotiating his release clause up from £34million to £84million.
Brazil international Hulk has also been closly monitored by both Manchester United and Manchester City. Fergie is considering adding to his strike force this summer and Roberto Mancini is getting more and more busy looking for a replacement for Emmanuel Adebayor – who looks likely to leave the club for Real Madrid when the transfer window opens.
