Shanghai Shenhua to make £70m bid for Zenit ace Hulk

Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua are preparing an enormous offer for Zenit Saint Petersburg striker Hulk.

According to Russian publication Izvestia, the Chinese Super League outfit are the latest to be linked with a big name in Europe and are willing to spend £69.9million (€91m) to get their man.

As the Chinese money continues to flow, Brazilian star Hulk is likely to be the subject of a ridiculous offer and could quite possibly join a host of fellow countrymen in the Far East.

Already Brazilian midfielder Ramires has joined Jiangsu Suning from Chelsea for £25m while Alex Teixeira is set to complete a £38m move from Shakhat Donetsk to Jiangsu.

Colombian striker Jackson Martinez left Atletico Madrid to join Guangzhou Evergrande for £32.2m recently and there are a host of other names such as Oscar, Yaya Toure and John Terry being linked with the Chinese top flight.
