Two Premier League clubs want to sign Zenit St Petersburg striker Hulk this summer, according to the player's agent.

The Brazilian international has failed to settle in Russia since his £52m move from Porto last year, and has been racially abused by his own supporters.

Speculation has mounted suggesting a move could be on the cards, with the player's agent now confirming that two Premier League clubs are keen to sign the forward this summer.

Speaking to Portuguese newspaper O Jogo as reported by Sky Sports, Teodoro Fonseca said: "There are two great teams of the Premier League to have made their interest known."

Andre Villas-Boas, who managed the player during his time at Porto, is reportedly keen to bring him to the Premier League, and Fonseca admitted the Spurs boss's link with the player makes sense.

"It is normal that such news would arise because it was with Andre Villas-Boas and Porto where Hulk had his best time."

Big-spending French side Monaco have been mentioned as possible suitors, having already agreed big-money deals for former-Porto stars James Rodriguez and Joao Moutinho.

But Fonseca has revealed the Ligue 2 champions have not registered their interest in the player.

"The future of Hulk is with Zenit, but I have never made such statements [about Monaco], I have not spoken to anyone from France."

Chelsea were linked with the 26-year-old forward before he moved to Zenit, and Jose Mourinho - the man expected to take over at Stamford Bridge this summer - is reportedly a fan of the player.
