Brazil international Hulk moves closer to joining ChelseaThe 27-year-old is expected to start for Brazil at this year's World Cup
The Zenit St. Petersburg star is thought to be edging nearer to a move to west London after an agent claimed he is ready to move to the Premier League at the end of the season.
Hulk is a long-term target for Chelsea and it is thought that the 27-year-old has grown frustrated with life in Russia.
An agent linked to the player has given the green light to the move.
"Despite the huge transfer fee required to sign Hulk, don’t rule out that he will move to one of the top clubs in Europe this summer," Shandor Varga told the Izvestia newspaper.
"English clubs still have the highest chance of signing him."
Zenit are reported to want £40million for the Brazil international.
