Brazil striker Hulk claims Chelsea are interested in signing him
The Zenit St Petersburg striker is attracting the interest of Jose Mourinho
Friday 07 June 2013
Brazil and Zenit St Petersburg striker Hulk believes Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is interested in signing him.
The 26-year-old moved to Russia last summer after four impressive seasons at Porto, but his time in St Petersburg has not been straightforward, particularly in view of some fans' opposition to non-white players.
Asked about Chelsea's reported interest, Hulk said in the Daily Telegraph: "If I said there wasn't anything in it, I would be lying.
"But that is not for now. At the moment, I am 100 per cent focused on Brazil and I hope to be a Confederations Cup winner with my country. Other matters will have to wait until afterwards."
Mourinho is widely expected to bring in reinforcements to his forward line, with Fiorentina's Stevan Jovetic and Edin Dzeko of Manchester City also linked.
