Blues 4/6 favourites to land Hulk

The 25-year-old has scored 52 goals in 96 games

Chelsea are the 4/6 favourites to sign Porto striker Hulk as Roman Abramovich open’s his chequebook for the Blues to build on their Champions League success.

Eden Hazard announced earlier this week that he would join Chelsea on a five-year deal for a fee expected to be in the region of £30million, and the Brazilian striker could soon join him at Stamford Bridge for a similar amount.

Hulk has a €100million buy-out clause in his contract but it is expected that Porto could be convinced to part with their prized asset for around £30million. The 25-year-old has scored 52 goals in 96 games since joining the Portuguese giants in 2008 and can play as a right-sided attacker. It is anticipated that we would be deployed in the Chelsea team alongside Fernando Torres rather than as a direct replacement for the Spaniard.

There are, however, a number of other clubs that could still make a move for Hulk. Malaga, Paris St Germain and Tottenham are each priced at odds of 10/1 in Sky Bet’s transfer betting market for the player, with Liverpool are at 11/1, Manchester United 14/1 and Manchester City are 18/1.
