Zenit St Petersburg striker Hulk has claimed that Chelsea and Tottenham have submitted offers in an attempt to bring his services to the Premier League.
The Brazilian striker, who has recently represented Brazil in the Confederations Cup has been attracting transfer interest all summer, with Chelsea being heavily linked following Jose Mourinho's appointment at the club earlier this month.
And Hulk has grown increasingly frustrated with his career in Russia, following a series of incidents since his arrival from Porto in 2012.
In the same month in which he arrived at Zenit, media speculation reported that fellow teammates Igor Denisov and Alexandr Kerzakhov were angry at Hulk's sky-high wages in comparison to the rest of the squad.
Hulk has also fallen out with coach Luciano Spalletti during his time at Zenit and had expressed his desire to leave.
Speculation has remained strife regarding his potential whereabouts this summer despite the fact he resolved his differences with the coaches.
And in a radio interview in Brazil, Hulk was adamant that move Mourinho and Andre Villas-Boas had made strong approaches for his services this month.
"These approaches do exist. There are lots of clubs interested in me though.
"Zenit is a great club, but if I do go I want to move to a better place, with a better team in a better competition," Hulk said.
Whoever wins the race to sign the striker will be expected to be a high fee in order to secure his services, after Zenit paid nearly £50million for his services in 2012.
Despite this, Zenit are reported to be willing to sanction his sale, if the offer is right.
Chelsea are the favourites in the race for his signature but the lure of working under former Porto boss Villas-Boas could be enough for Tottenham to secure the signing of the Brazilian international.
