The powerful forward is ready to take the next step in his career and play in a more competitive league, with England being seen as the most ideal destination
The Brazil international has been heavily linked with a switch to Chelsea, with English reports suggesting that a transfer to Stamford Bridge is "90 per cent complete".
Hulk's agent had previously indicated that the striker wishes to further his career at a bigger club, and he has now stated that the Premier League is the best place for him to enhance his reputation and cement his place in the Brazil national team ahead of the World Cup.
"Hulk has the desire to play in a better and more competitive league, with the thought of making Brazil's squad at World Cup 2014," Theodoro Fonseca told Antena 1.
"The Premier League fulfills that requirement."
The 25-year-old has a €100 million release clause attached to his Porto contract, which expires in 2016.
