If the latest reports are to be believed, West London-based Premiership side Chelsea have targeted Portuguese Primeira Liga side Porto's Brazilian winger Hulk and will make an attempt to land the player when the transfer window opens in summer.

According to a Daily Mail report, the Blues are closing in on a $56.77 million (£35million) deal for Hulk after the player's agent admitted he was in talks with four Barclays Premier League clubs. Although the agent, Theodoro Fonseca, has only named Tottenham among the clubs that have made an approach for Hulk, Chelsea are supposedly on top to sign the 25-year-old player.

In the last week or so, I have been talking to four Premier League clubs about Hulk, and Tottenham are one of them, Fonseca told the Daily Mail.

Apart from Tottenham and Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool are also expected to make a bid for the player.

Givanildo Vieira de Souza, who is also known as Hulk due to his resemblance to actor Lou Ferrigno, who played the comic character The Incredible Hulk, moved to Porto from Japanese J. League Division 1 in 2008. He has made 164 appearances for the Portistas and has managed to score 74 times in all competitions.
