Chelsea are reportedly closing on a deal to sign Brazilian powerhouse Hulk, as potential new boss Jose Mourinho wants to add him to the squad in the summer window.

Hulk has been linked with a move to Chelsea in the past, but nothing ever materialised and it was a massive shock to many when he decided to make a big money move to Zenit St Petersburg.

However, he has failed to make any real impact in the Russian leagues and has continually rowed with his current boss.

And according to reports on the Daily Star website, Mourinho is a massive admirer of the Brazilian and wants to make him one of his first summer captures when he gets back to Stamford Bridge, like many expect him too.

The blues plan a massive summer spending spree and could see some exciting and talented players arrive that will surely make them a European force once again.
