Chelsea move in on Hulk

Chelsea are closing in on Porto striker Hulk, with sources claiming last night that the transfer was "90pc" complete.

There was some confusion over the fee that the Portuguese club would accept, however, with officials claiming they still want £60m, and Chelsea insisting that they will pay only £40m.

Brazilian Hulk -- full name Givanildo Vieira de Souze -- scored 21 goals in 38 appearances last season as he helped guide Porto to their second successive league title.
