Hulk's camp say they remain unsure if the Zenit St Petersburg striker will still be in Russia after the summer market shuts. The Brazil international is a target for Tottenham and Chelsea.

"We do not know if there will be an outcome regarding his departure from Zenit. They paid dearly for him, are satisfied with him. I do not know if it will happen or not.

"Who has this answer is the agent," said the player's advisor, Ahaz Fellegger.
