Porto striker Hulk has hinted he would be interested in a reunion with his former boss Andre Villas-Boas at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are the only club in the top six who have yet to make a move in the summer transfer window, and after the club spent a reported combined £71.8 million on Fernando Torres and David Luiz in January, pundits and fans are waiting with much anticipation to find out who Villas-Boas will make his first signing.

Naturally, since Chelsea appointed Villas-Boas as manager last month, numerous Porto players have been tipped to join the man who wants to be known as the ‘Group One’ not the ‘next Special One’.

And now Brazilian striker Hulk, who was Primera Liga’s top scorer last season with 23 goals, says teaming up with Villas-Boas once more would be an intriguing prospect. "I believe that it is not easy to pay my release clause,” Hulk told Portuguese media.

“But if any club is able, it is Chelsea. If Roman Abramovich arrives with the money, this is positive for the club. But I insist that my head is with Porto."

With Hulk having only signed a new five-year contract with the Portuguese club in May, Porto are in a strong bargaining position - should Chelsea come knocking - with Sky Sports reporting the 24-year-old's buy-out clause is set at an astonishing €100 million.

Meanwhile, fellow Porto striker Radamel Falcao has also been linked with a move to Chelsea, with the Colombian suggesting this week that he is hoping to move to England at some point in his career.

“There is a club that I dream to play for. They are foreign but I do not want to say who it is now,” Falcao said. "The Spanish league is good, but I prefer the Premier League as there is a better atmosphere on the field.”
