Porto star Hulk is eager to see a move to Chelsea happen. The Daily Mail says the Brazil forward has been a long-term target for the Champions League winners and both clubs have held advanced talks about a proposed move.
However, sources close to the deal say the main stumbling block towards the transfer remains the transfer fee.
Hulk has an £80million release clause written into his contract - though the Portuguese club will accept an offer of around £38million.
Chelsea are yet to meet that valuation, causing a delay in the transfer, though the deal is still expected to be completed.
