Chelsea are maintaining contact with the camp of Zenit St Petersburg star Hulk.

Hulk declared before the kickoff to the Brazil's Confederations Cup campaign that he wanted to speak with Chelsea.

A Bola says Blues boss Jose Mourinho has called his representatives to assure them of his interest, which is expected to ramp up once Hulk's Brazil commitments are over.

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas, who worked with Hulk at Porto, is also keen to discuss a move to London with the Brazil striker.
