Hard-hitting Brazil international would be an ideal new addition at Stamford Bridge next season, if reports are to be believed.

It appears as though Jose Mourinho has already begun drawing up a list of possible transfer targets if the Portuguese does decide to return to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season after all.
The current Real Madrid boss has been heavily linked with a dramatic return to the club that he coached so successfully between 2004 and 2007 and the Portuguese’s No 1 target is powerful Zenit St Petersburg front man Hulk.
The 26-year-old, who only actually joined the Russian champions last year in a deal worth a staggering €60 million, would be an ideal addition to the Premier League as he has both the physicality and the technique to flourish in the top flight.
And, with a career goalscoring record of 128 goals in 215 matches over an eight-year period, one thing you can guarantee with Hulk is an incredible amount of goals (if you’ll excuse the pun).
Having previously hinted that he could leave Zenit with regular flirting comments about a Premier League transfer, it would be no surprise to see this move come off this summer.
