Some exciting news for Chelsea fans this morning with the Daily Mail reporting that the club have opened talks over a move for £50m-rated Napoli striker Edinson Cavani as well as tabling a £34.9m bid for Zenit St Petersburg hitman Hulk.

New Blues boss Jose Mourinho seems intent on adding to his strike-force this summer and the report claims he is also confident of landing Fiorentina’s £25m-rated striker Stevan Jovetic while a move for Edin Dzeko could be made if they lose out on Cavani to either Man City or Real Madrid.

Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis confirmed on Thursday night that Chelsea were in for the Uruguayan forward and he was expecting further talks to take place imminently.

‘There is interest from Chelsea in Cavani, they’ll call me in the next few hours. I’ll be delighted if he stays, but if he leaves then he will be adequately replaced.’ de Laurentiis is quoted as saying by the Mail

Brazilian striker Hulk also confirmed that the Europa League winners wanted to take him to west London. When asked about a reported bid from Chelsea, the 25-year-old told reporters at a Brazilian press conference yesterday:

‘If I said there wasn’t anything in it, I would be lying. But that is not for now. At the moment, I am 100 per cent focused on the Selecao (Portuguese for the Brazil team). Other matters will have to wait until afterwards.’ Hulk is quoted as saying by the Mail

The Mail claim that Zenit have rejected Chelsea’s opening bid of £34.9m as they want to hold out for nearer the £44m they paid Porto last summer, but it’s understood the offer will remain on the table as the Blues are confident the lack of alternative bids will force the Russians into accepting.

If this news is accurate it looks like it’s going to be an exciting summer at Stamford Bridge and Jose Mourinho appears to be showing a real intent to build a squad capable of challenging for the Premier League and Champions League next season.

However, should they manage to lure Hulk, Cavani and possibly even Jovetic to west London it will surely throw the futures of Demba Ba, Fernando Torres and Romelu Lukaku into doubt.

    Cavani will be a good signing for CFC but hulk will be a big flop if signed considering he lacks accuracy on goal. Demba ba and Torres can still remain at CFC though.

    I prefer hulk to cavani but am sure both of them will be a good addition to the squad but jovetic is injury prone. It ll be better if we have more than 4 strikers cos the likes of manchester city and manchester united won the league with 4 strikers and they have enough options in case one flops or injury problems

    Jose Mourinho please do whatever it takes to bring Hulk to stamford bridge, Hulk is really an ideal replacement for Didier Drogba. I have watched his clips and what i saw was incredible. Hulk is powerful, skillful, scores incredible goals and has much speed and unpredictable. Hulk can add much value to chelsea and can make us formidable. Jose make the fans happy by getting us Hulk. Forget about Dzeko, we don’t need him, he is so dull and sluggish. Combination of Cavani and Hulk will be fire because are very strong, have good timing and scores unpredictable goals.
