Chelsea will not be held to ransom in their pursuit of strikers Edinson Cavani and Hulk, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

Both players have been heavily linked with moves to Stamford Bridge, but high valuations and huge wage demands threaten to put an end to talk of a possible move before the end of the transfer window.

The news could be a boost to Manchester City, who have also been linked with moves for both players in the past.

Cavani would cost either side a fee in the region of £35 million, with wages at around £150,000 making the Napoli striker an expensive signing.

Hulk would cost a similar figure, although the £80 million minimum fee release clause in his contract is merely an attempt to ward off interest. That hasn’t worked however, with the Porto player admitting he’s open to a move to England or Spain.

“I have left the door open to be transferred,” said Hulk earlier in the week.

“My preference is to play in England or Spain because they are the most watched league in the world. Now is a great time for me to move.”

A player who does look set to move to Chelsea is Victor Moses, however, although the Blues are yet to reach an agreement over the exact transfer figure for Wigan’s winger.
