Brazilian striker Hulk has and admitted that there is truth behind the rumours linking him with a big-money move to Chelsea this summer.

The Blues have reportedly made a £35m move for the Zenit St. Petersburg striker, who scored seven goals in 18 appearances in the Russian Premier League this season.

However the Russians are reportedly looking to scrape back some of the £50m they paid to Porto for his services in 2012.

Chelsea were unsuccessful in bids for the Brazil star last year as they tried to lure him to the Premier League; the striker instead opting for a huge pay packet to try and propel Zenit St. Petersburg up the table.

Will they be more pushy trying to get their man this time around? Especially now that they have lost out on their main target Radamel Falcao, who joined Monaco last week.

The big centre-forward, named for his resemblance to the actor who played the Incredible Hulk in the 1970's TV series, Lou Ferrigno, has scored seven goals in 21 matches for Brazil and will be hoping to increase that total as Brazil warm up for the World Cup with the Confederations Cup tournament.  

Will Hulk be the man to help Chelsea and Jose Mourinho fight their way back into Premier League contention this season and ease the pressure on Fernando Torres?
