Tottenham spent £26m to sign Valencia star Roberto Soldado and then £30m to bring in AS Roma forward Erik Lamela but the pair have scored just five Premier League goals from a combined total of 29 appearances so once can see why the White Hart Lane side would once again look to bring in attacking reinforcements.
Now chairman Daniel Levy is ready to provide funds to make a significant offer for Zenit St Petersburg striking powerhouse Hulk, perhaps mindful that the North London club will be even lighter for options up front when Jermain Defoe leaves for MLS side Toronto FC in a few months.
Hulk had an average first season in the Russian Premier League but has been much improved this term, scoring 12 goals in 20 appearances, helping his side to the top of the table.
A move to the Premier League may well tempt the former FC Porto man though Chelsea’s apparent interest could well drive up his valuation.
