Manchester City are believed to be willing to make a £20 million move to capture Porto striker Hulk.
The 24-year-old is thought to have attracted interest from manager Roberto Mancini owing to his fantastic goal scoring performances for the Portuguese club, having scored 11 goals and created three more in 10 league appearances.
Wolfsburg's Edin Dzeko was previously reported to have been the Eastlands club's top transfer target, but it is believed that the Bundesliga club's asking price of £50m has caused City to look elsewhere.
Now The Mirror claims that the potential acquisition of the Brazilian is due to the team's over reliance on skipper Carlos Tevez, who has played a pivotal part in the club's rise in stature this season.
In the meantime, Emmanuel Adebayor has claimed that he will leave City on loan to join Juventus, while Roque Santa Cruz is also expected to walk through the exit door.
