Chelsea attempt to drive down Porto price for Hulk
Chelsea are haggling over a fee with Porto for star striker Hulk. The London Evening Standard says while Fernando Torres has been told he will lead the line next season, Hulk is being ear-marked to play on the right-hand side or as a second striker.
The 25-year-old has an £80m release clause in his contract but Porto are willing to negotiate and the two clubs are understood to be getting closer to agreeing a fee. The Portuguese club are demanding £35m, while Chelsea will go as high as £30m.
