Chelsea close on new signings

Chelsea's summer recruitment drive may have gathered pace amid reports they were closing in on the signings of Eden Hazard and Hulk.

Belgium playmaker Hazard was said to be preparing for a medical on Monday ahead of an expected move from Lille, while it was suggested Porto forward Hulk had agreed terms with the European champions on a four-year contract.

Brazil star Hulk, who has been valued at £38million, has certainly seemed to pave the way for a potential transfer by hinting the time could be right for him to leave Portugal. Asked what the future held for him, the 25-year-old told Lancenet: "I will always continue to work hard and keep my feet on the ground, regardless of whether I stay at Porto."
