Chelsea want to sign Porto striker Hulk for a world record transfer fee.

Chelsea are ready to make a move for Porto striker Hulk, according to The Mirror.

Hulk, whose real name is Givanildo Vieira de Souza, played for Andre Villas-Boas when the Chelsea boss managed the Portuguese club.

The 25-year-old is keen on a move to England but Porto's asking price of €100m (£87.6m) could prove a stumbling block.

"Porto value me at €100m and that would be a world record transfer, but I prefer to do my talking on the pitch with humility and the desire to always prove myself," said Hulk.

"There are rumours that clubs in England and Italy are interested in me, but I will only concentrate on Porto. If something has to happen in January or at the end of the season then it will happen."

The Brazilian striker has scored five goals for Porto so far this season.

Hulk had been linked with moves to Chelsea and Inter during the summer transfer window.
