Ramires admits he is hoping to see Hulk seal a transfer to Chelsea this summer.

The Brazilian striker has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in recent days, with some reports claiming a £38m deal has already been struck with Porto for the forward.

And Ramires says he and David Luiz would welcome his fellow countryman with open arms, should the 25-year-old finally seal a switch to west London.

“I am following from here in Brazil the news about Hulk’s probable signing for Chelsea,” Ramires said.

“It seems he is coming. I played with him in the Brazilian team, we were on opposing side when I played for Benfica and he would definitely add a lot to the team.

“If it was up to me it would already be settled. With the personality that he has, he will come, put on the shirt and start playing.

“He will not have any problem adapting. Both me and David Luiz will make him feel at home quickly. I hope it all works out.”

Hulk netted 19 goals in 34 appearances for Porto last season as they retained their Portuguese league title.
