Chelsea Transfer News: Blues Will Make One Final Push To Sign Porto's Hulk

Chelsea's number one transfer target of the summer is set to confirm his future by Wednesday this week. 

Brazilian winger Hulk has been the subject of a transfer saga for the last couple of months and this week see's the end of the transfer window on Saturday, and an end to this story.

TribalFootball have reported an interview between Porto's media Chief Ahaz Felleger and Record. Ahaz claims that everything will be decided before the 31st of August. He also says that Hulk has told his agent that he wants everything sorted out before Wednesday. 

Chelsea, Tottenham and Zenit St Petersburg are the three clubs fighting for the 26-year-old's signature and it is Chelsea who lead the way. Their club's owner Roman Abramovich is ready to move in this week with one final push in an attempt to land the players signature. 

The blues lead the way for the winger based on the fact that the player wants to play Champions League football this season and the Premier League is his preferred destination. 

Having already confirmed the signings of right back Cesar Azpilicueta from Marseille and Victor Moses from Wigan, Chelsea are attempting to bring in one more attacker, to provide options and cover for the likes of Fernando Torres. Hulk is a winger, but the fact he can play as a centre forward as well, appeals to Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo.

It will take no less than £35 million to capture Hulk, but this will not faze Tottenham, Chelsea or Zenit, who all have money available.
