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.
