Chelsea have launched a bid for Zenit St Petersburg striker Hulk. The Mirror says Jose Mourinho has made a stunning £35million move for Brazil forward Hulk.

Chelsea have turned to Zenit St Petersburg striker Hulk as a potential summer signing, having lost out to Monaco on No1 target Radamel Falcao, because they are now facing major competition for Napoli hitman Edinson Cavani.

Ironically, the Blues were very close to buying Hulk last summer but could not agree a deal with his then-club Porto, who were demanding £40m.
