Chelsea chiefs convinced landing Porto stars Hulk, Pereira for affordable fee

Chelsea are chasing Porto stars Hulk and Alvaro Pereira. Both players have been on Chelsea's radar since former Porto coach Andre Villas-Boas' arrival - and his dismissal hasn't changed their thinking.

Centre-forward Hulk has already attracted one approach from Chelsea this season, which saw Porto quote them a price of €100 million.

However, this summer, Porto are expected to price the Brazilian more realistically at around €40 million.

Similarly, fullback Alvaro Pereira was all set to join Chelsea in August for €26 million before Porto upped his price to €30 million at the final stage of negotiations.

Despite their anger at the time, Chelsea are confident they can now sign the Uruguay international for €20 million.
