Chelsea have been warned they must move quickly if they want to guarantee the signing of Porto forward Hulk.

The Stamford Bridge club were reported to be close to agreeing a deal with the Portuguese club, but the player’s agent has now claimed a number of other teams are interested in signing the Brazil international.

Added to this, Teodoro Fonseca warned that his client would not rock the boat for a Blues move and that he was content to stay in Portugal, so would not rule signing a new deal with the champions of Portugal.

He revealed Porto had already made an offer of new terms, but reports from last month suggested Blues owner Roman Abramovich had already agreed a deal in principle for the powerful forward.

“The Blues are not the only European club interested and at the moment it all depends on Porto,” Fonseca told Record.

“I am in permanent contact with president Pinto Da Costa but there have been no advances on this subject.

“The club want him to stay and we have received the offer of a new deal.

“If Hulk stays in Porto then there is no problem as he is happy in Porto. He has had three years of interest from big European clubs and he still plays in Portugal.”

Chelsea have already finalised the signing of £32million playmaker Eden Hazard this summer, as well as announcing the purchase of German midfielder Marko Marin earlier this year, but many believe Abramovich will not end his pending there.

Were he to move to Stamford Bridge, Hulk would join international teammates Ramires and David Luiz.
