Spurs 'hold talks' with £35m striker - reports

Published Add your comment

Tottenham have reportedly made an initial approach in their quest to sign Porto striker Hulk.

According to the Daily Mail, the north London club have already held talks with the representatives of the Brazil international, and are now planning an official offer in the region of £35 million.

Hulk has a release clause of £88 million written into his contract, but it is alleged that his employers would be willing to let him leave the Estádio do Dragão for significantly less, should the Portuguese champions be satisfied with the offer.

And, although Spurs would have to smash their transfer-record to bring Hulk to White Hart Lane, it is claimed the 25-year-old's wage demands will fit with the wage structure.


The acquisition of a forward with proven goalscoring prowess has been identified as a summer priority for Harry Redknapp and, with 36 goals last season, Hulk would provide the Spurs boss with just that.

Hulk also managed 21 assists as he and strike-partner Radamel Falcao fired Porto to domestic and European glory under the stewardship of Andre Villas-Boas.

However, with reports suggesting Atletico Madrid are set to make a move for Falcao, Spurs may miss out on Hulk, with Porto unlikely to sell their two prized assets during the same transfer window.
