Reports linking FC Porto striker Hulk with a summer transfer to Chelsea is ‘nothing but lies’, according to his agent Teodoro Fonseca.

The 24-year-old recently signed a contract extension with the Portuguese and Europa League champions until 2016 and inserted an £88.7million buyout clause.

Hulk scored 36 goals in 51 games as Porto swept all before them last season, winning a domestic league and cup double before adding a Europa League triumph.

Chelsea were supposed to be after the Brazil international following the arrival of Andre Villas-Boas to Stamford Bridge.

But Fonseca has rubbished these claims and stated there has been no contact between the two clubs over a possible sale.

“We have not received any proposals and have not even been contacted by any club,” Fonseca told O Jogo.

“Everything that’s been written about a potential move is nothing but lies.”

While Chelsea have not made contact with Hulk, they are in talks with Porto about his strike partner Falcao, who has his own buyout clause of £26.6million.
