Hulk’s agent says his client is desperate for a move to Chelsea in order to ensure his place in Brazil’s 2014 World Cup squad.

The Porto striker has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in recent weeks, with a deal said to be close to being completed.

Hulk is believed to have an £80 million release-clause in his contract, however Chelsea are believed to have agreed a fee in the region of £30 million.

While Roberto di Matteo remained tight-lipped yesterday during his first press conference as full-time Chelsea manager, refusing to speak out about specific players, Hulk’s agent Teodoro Fonseca says he is desperate for a move to west London in order to bolster his hopes for a World Cup call-up on home soil.

"Hulk is among the most coveted players in Europe. He feels good at Porto, he is part of the family, but a departure is not impossible," he said.

''He wants to play at the 2014 World Cup in his homeland and playing in England makes this more realistic.'

The 25-year-old was included in Brazil’s football squad for the Olympics this summer as one of his country’s three allotted over-age players.
