Zenit St Peteresburg forward Hulk has issued a ‘come and get me’ plea to Chelsea after becoming disillusioned with life in Russia.
Metro reports that the £40 million pound man has asked to be transferred at the end of the season after falling out with manager Luciano Spalletti.
The Blues have previously twice failed with bids for the Brazilian, who has managed just three goals in eleven league appearances with the Russian champions.
Meanwhile, The Sun have reported that Chelsea are currently in pole position to sign Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure.
It was claimed earlier this week that the Ivory Coast international would leave the Etihad Stadium in the summer if he wasn’t offered an improvement on his current deal, thought to be worth £220,000 per week.
Real Madrid are also said to be interested in the 29 year old, who would cost around £22 million.
Elsewhere, Gael Kakuta has revealed that he is seeking a permanent move away from Stamford Bridge.
The 21 year old, who has barely featured for the Blues since signing in 2009, is currently on loan at Vitesse in the Netherlands, having previously had spells with Fulham, Bolton Wanderers and Dijon in his homeland.
