Chelsea and Tottenham have reportedly stepped up their pursuit of Zenit St Petersburg star Hulk, according to the Brazilian player’s agent.

The Brazilian is seemingly unhappy at the Russian side and a move to the Premier League has been on the cards for the last few seasons.

Chelsea tried last summer to bring him to England, but he instead completed a £48million transfer to Zenit St Petersburg.

And Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas was reportedly trying to nail down his signature in the January transfer window.

However, it seems a battle between the two will ensue this coming summer window as his agent has claimed that both are closing in on his signature, according to the Daily Express.

Hulk would fit into both sides style of play perfectly, but his price tag is a massive problem.
