Hulk’s agent has claimed the striker could leave Zenit St Petersburg this summer amid interest from Chelsea and Monaco.

The Brazil international has been a long-term target for the west London side, who appointed Jose Mourinho as their new manager earlier this month.

Monaco have also been linked with a bid for Hulk after signing his former Porto strike-partner Radamel Falcao in a big-money deal earlier in June.

And the South American’s agent Jose Caldeira has hinted Hulk could leave the Russian outfit during the current transfer window following the conclusion of the Confederations Cup.

“We can’t announce anything at the moment, the player is focusing on the Confederations Cup and nothing will be made official during this period,” Caldeira said.

“France is a possibility, but there are others. Everything is possible.”

Hulk scored seven goals in 18 Russian Premier League appearances following a reported £50m move to Zenit St Petersburg from Porto last summer.

The 26-year-old, who has scored six goals for Brazil, is expected to feature for Luis Felipe Scolari’s side against Mexico on Wednesday night.
