Chelsea are being encouraged to try again for Porto star Hulk. The Daily Mail says Blues owner Roman Abramovich is ready to make a £34m bid for Brazilian striker Hulk.

Chelsea have been encouraged to make a fresh move for Hulk after the striker - who has a €99m escape clause in his contract - indicated he wanted to leave Porto.

Hulk scored 36 goals in 53 matches last season under Andre Villas-Boas to help Porto to win the league, Portuguese Cup and Europa League.
