Chelsea interested in Hulk but nothing concrete yet, says agent

The Brazilian's agent has declared that his client is "open to talks at any time" with the Blues, who are set to lose Didier Drogba when his Stamford Bridge contract expires

The agent of Porto star Hulk has revealed that the striker would jump at the chance to replace Didier Drogba at Chelsea.

With the Blues' Champions League hero revealing his ambition to leave the club when his contract expires this summer, the Brazilian striker feels that he would be well suited to a place at Stamford Bridge.

Hulk's agent, Teodoro Fonseca, has admitted that the player is a big fan of both the Premier League and, more specifically, Chelsea, and that an approach would be welcomed, though "nothing concrete" has yet come of the Londoners' interest.

Consequences for Fernando Torres

Fonseca was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying: "We are open to talks with Chelsea at any time, any place.

"There is interest, but at the moment there is still nothing concrete. He likes the English Premier League a lot and Chelsea are a good club for Hulk."

Chelsea's interest in the Porto striker has gone on for a couple of seasons but the Portuguese outfit have taken a strong stance on the player's future, claiming that the Blues' would have to trigger his £80 million release clause to get him.

Yet with Hulk stating his intentions to move this asking price may be substantially reduced therefore making the possibility of him playing at Stamford Bridge next season more likely.
