Hulk: The FC Porto striker could be a Janaury target for Chelsea - according to his agent
FC Porto striker Hulk would welcome the chance to team up with his former boss Andre Villas-Boas at Chelsea, according to the player's agent.
The 25-year-old powerhouse recently admitted that he could be tempted by a move to West London, despite an astronomical buy-out clause of £87.5million, a world record fee, which has put many top clubs off, despite reported interest from Tottenham and Inter Milan.
The Brazilian thrived under Villas-Boas during the manager's spell at the Estadio do Dragao, scoring an impressive 36 goals in 53 games last season in helping the club claim the League and Cup double as well as winning the Europa League.
And agent Theodoro Fonseca admitted to A Bola: "In all transfer windows there are polls and contacts with several clubs.
"Andre Villas-Boas knows him very well and they have a very good relationship. Hulk loves Andre and he would love to work with him at Chelsea or with any other team because he likes the way he coaches.
"In football everything is possible, but his buy-out clause is very expensive, so his future will depend on the agreement between the two clubs.
"However, Hulk is doing very well at Porto and he has a very good relationship with the club."
